Kristian R.

Title/Department: DORS/Transition Specialist/Employment Services
# of Years with The Arc NCR: 6 months
Nominated by: Sherry K.

Here are the highlights from Kristian’s nomination.

Demonstrating The Arc NCR’s Mission

Kristian is tenacious, always asking “what if?” and “why not?”  She is creative and smart. She looks for ways to break down barriers and is a strong advocate for those she supports.  Kristian gets jobs that help those she supports not only work but thrive in their community.

Advocating for Supported Individuals

It was because of Kristian’s strong advocacy a young woman with a visual impairment achieved her goal.  She has her “dream job” which allows her to work with children.  When there was a change in management at this person’s work site, Kristian visited the new team to advocate and ensure this person’s continued success there.

Top Three Attributes

  • Creative- Kristian thinks out of the box which is a key quality to be an effective developer.
  • Dependable: I know that I can depend on Kristian to do what is asked as well as what is needed.
  • Honest: Kristian is honest.  Sometimes honesty is what is needed most to be effective.
