"Of all the places I have been employed at, this is the most collaborative environment I have ever experienced. I'm able to brainstorm and talk with colleagues daily who are wholly invested in the same families and children I care so much about. ... I could not imagine doing this job without my coworkers to rely on, lean on and team up with."
