What do our employees have to say about working for Talbert House?


"Talbert House is full of opportunities. I began at Community Correctional Center part-time before moving full-time as a Case Manager at Western Hills. One year later I was promoted to Operations Supervisor and again a year after to my current role as Associate Director at Burnet Intensive Services.

Everything about this job excites me. I love changing lives and making a difference. Not only are we changing the lives of our clients, they are also changing our lives as well. It never seems like work to me."

Margurite Jackson, Operational Lead


25 Years Tenure

"Absolutely the most satisfying thing about my work at Talbert House is when I experience clients making changes and moving onto constructive lives. Since I work exclusively with clients who have experienced extreme trauma it is their progress and the challenges presented by their experiences that keeps me coming to work. [As well as], the support I have had [at Talbert House] and the ability to do what I know is clinically and ethically the thing to do regarding my clients."

Advice: "Be sure to have good supervision and support, read all the books you can about the work you are doing, ask questions, do not be afraid to tell a client you may be wrong, and allow yourself time to debrief and do other activities to prevent burn out."

Central Services Intern

"I would absolutely recommend an internship at Talbert House for anyone interested in a career in the nonprofit field. The hands-on experience was extremely valuable. Now that I have seen the internal workings of a communications department, I have a much better understanding of what direction I want to take going forward. I am very grateful for the opportunity, especially to the Scripps Howard Foundation for alloing me to take part in their Communications Internship program."

James Woodson


“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.”

Mental Health

"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

Judy Richardson

40 Years Tenure

"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)
