I grew up on a dairy farm and as the oldest of 6 children I helped with the care of my yonger siblings and eventually other children in our neighborhood. It was no surprise that I would find a career working with children. The following quote comes to mind when I think of my work at CCS, “Find a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
