"This has been one of the most rewarding years of my professional career. I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to get to work every day with genuinely great people while having a positive impact on our community."
Alex Rulon, Associate Director
“The work I do excites me. It reminds me that it does not matter how many times someone may fall or stumble, it is about how they get back up and try again. I get to witness individuals on a daily basis get up and try again. I enjoy helping others change their behavioral patterns so they can be successful in their attempt to lead healthy and productive lives.”
James Woodson, ASM
"Talbert House is a really great place to work because they are concerned about me and my career development. I’ve received a lot of professional development and support from supervisors who have encouraged me in different opportunities, giving me the support and training I need, and then helped me advance to more opportunities as I gained more skills."
Joanna Lowry, Associate Director
"One of the great things about working for Talbert House is being able to see the direct impact you have on a client and within the community. Another is the sense of family that you get from your coworkers. We are a fairly large agency, but we're still pretty tight-knit internally."
Erin Mitchell, Director
"My favorite part about working at Talbert House has been working with therapists and enabling them to enable change. I enjoy seeing their growth. Coming in being a novice, fresh out of school with limited experience, I enjoy watching them grow - thinking and gaining confidence in skill."
"My advice is: you have to be flexible. There have been so many different changes all through the system. Even the way therapists or case managers would have approached a client is different today. Now we look at so many more dimensions. Change - if you're going into this field, you have to be able to adapt to change."
Judy Richardson, Supervisor (Adult Behavioral Health)
