November is a month of gratitude. With Thanksgiving and Veterans Day, it feels only right to publish our last Staff Spotlight this month.
We’re turning the spotlight on Jennifer Garcia, a Clinical Assistant at Therapeutic Pathways. Jennifer has been with us for 14 years, starting as an Instructional Assistant in 2009, then moving up to become a founding Program Assistant at the Modesto Center.
In 2018, Jennifer earned her BCaBA certification and became a Clinical Assistant at Therapeutic Pathways.
Dedicated, hardworking, and helpful, Jennifer has had a profound impact on countless children’s lives.
We got to ask Jennifer some questions about her position at Therapeutic Pathways as well as her career goals and personal motivations.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Therapeutic Pathways?
My clients! I love to see them grow, gain skills, and become independent in tasks. Also, working with their families to help them be the best advocate they can be for their child.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
Spending one-on-one time with my clients and hearing their laughter and sweet little voices.
How do you define success?
My definition of success is client-centered. For my clients to acquire new skills, no matter how small, makes me a successful clinician.
Is there anything you’d like to add about working at Therapeutic Pathways?
I love the time that my supervisors (including Jane Howard and Coleen Sparkman) have taken over the years to help me learn and grow. I love that what they’ve taught me helps me serve my clients with a better understanding and helps me strive to be the best clinician and supervisor I can be.
Thank you, Jennifer!
With gratitude and appreciation, we are proud to introduce Jennifer as one of our longest-working employees. Our organization wouldn’t be as strong as it is without Jennifer’s innumerable contributions and hard work.
Thank you, Jennifer, and we look forward to working with you for years to come!
