Hello, my name is Melissa Bowers! I recently transitioned from approximately fifteen years as a medical assistant to join CHOICES in March 2016 as an administrative assistant, while I seek to obtain my Masters in Social Work. My position allows me to gain valuable first-hand experience from the ground up- assisting managers and social workers in all three of our departments (Foster Care, Home-based Services, and Independent Living).
I have always had a heart for hurting people and have mentored many people along the way. In 2013, I started my own business in professional organizing and have worked with families threatened to lose their homes or children due to poor living conditions. This inspired me to pursue my degree in Social Work. I want to do my part in helping keep families together and instill positive change to their environment.
I am grateful CHOICES gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the best professionals in the field!
