Hi there, my name is Kristy, and I am the Director of Support Services and a Licensed Practical Nurse at COR. I have been with COR for 2.5 years, and it continues to be an amazing journey!
I first learned about COR’s culture and philosophy when I took my first Gentle Teaching training from Michael at Hope’s Home over 8 years ago. I have always admired COR’s success in supporting some of the most complex people in our province, and I am blessed to be a part of this amazing team.
My favourite project at COR has been building relationships with all the people at COR. They teach me more than I can ever teach them, and I feel grateful to be a part of their lives. My proudest moment at COR was when we successfully transitioned a person into their first apartment and watched them thrive independently.
For prospective COR candidates, my advice is to join us! COR has a positive and fun work culture, and you will make a significant impact on people’s everyday lives. There are many layers of support at COR, and you will never feel alone in your work.
Fun Facts about me:
When I am not working, I love to celebrate all things! I enjoy crafting, party planning, and attending concerts. I also love to cheer on my three kids and husband at all of their events, and I love to travel. Recently, I had an amazing vacation in France to see our oldest son. We toured Paris and Dunkirk and even saw a little bit of Belgium. It was fantastic to see all the Parisian sites! My favourite book is The Ride of a Lifetime by Robert Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, and my favourite quote is “Struggle and Emerge,” which is from my Alma matter, Athol Murray College of Notre Dame. I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me and COR!
