“I am passionate about my role at Timberline because I not only have the opportunity to support and mentor frontline staff, but having involvement with the residents and their overall wellbeing is rewarding. I am so proud of the accomplishments our girls and women make while here at Timberline and knowing I can be even some small part of that is an amazing feeling.”
