MEET CHRISTINE BOEMIG!
Christine Boemig wanted a career path that would be more personally fulfilling to her than the one she was on a little more than three years ago when she applied for a position with Lakes Region Community Services. During her college years Christine spent time teaching people with disabilities how to swim. But her recent experience had been working as a manager, both in retail and banking. Christine finds her current job with LRCS much more rewarding. “I look forward to spending time with the people I support every day and they appreciate the time we spend together as much as I do,” she said. “I love my job.” It’s not just the nature of the work that has enhanced Christine’s quality of life. She cites her health plan and work schedule (Christine works from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.) as benefits of the job that make her life run more smoothly. Christine thinks it’s important for a direct support professional to be patient, kind, empathetic and to treat others as they would want to be treated. She has many hobbies and talents that she brings to the table and can share with the individuals she supports including crafting, painting, skiing and cooking. “I always strive to make the time I spend with the individuals I support full of learning and fun experiences,” said Christine. “I’ve learned to never, ever give up, to always strive to be my best and help the people I support do the same.”
