Question: How long have you been with Bost?
Question: How did you first get involved with Bost, and what sparked that interest?
I answered an ad in the newspaper for clerical work. During my interview, I toured the Foster Building and saw all the work going on there and the diversity of those served. I needed a job but I was proud to be a part of the team.
Question: What has surprised you most about working with Bost?
The scope of services that Bost provides and the way the administrative team strives to stay in front of the growing needs.
Question: What do you wish other people knew about Bost?
I wish more people knew the variety of individuals and services that we provide! People tend to think we ONLY serve kids or ONLY serve individuals with a certain disability. Lots of people are surprised that we serve people, of all disabilities and mental health needs, from 6 weeks throughout life!
Question: What’s the best thing that has happened since you started working with Bost?
It’s been such a blessing, just in the span of time that I have worked at Bost, to see how much Bost has grown! We have added so much housing, satellite locations, so many more services! It’s been amazing to experience.
Question: What do you hope will be different about the world we live in as a result of what you do here?
I hope that the impact of Bost will be more people having access to the services they need to live the most independent lives possible!
Jeanne’s supervisor, Katie Raines, has this to say about her: Though I have only been a part of Jeanne’s journey with BOST for a few years, I am thrilled to get to talk about her. If you know Jeanne, it is most likely as the lady behind the magic of Grape Escapes – the BOST social media and website person – or the employee who gets me the shirts and cool marketing supplies. That’s her – but her job is much more. Her biggest role is to make sure that what each of you do every day and the individuals we serve are highlighted in our communities.
Jeanne is proud of BOST and it shows in her work. She always says it is easy to talk about something you truly believe in. She has been, and continues to be, integral in assuring the rich history of BOST is preserved, while ensuring our future replicates the roots from which we were sown.
Thank you for answering that ad 20 years ago and choosing BOST. You are a great example to others of where dedication, hard work, and stepping out of your comfort zone can lead you. Congratulations on a job well done!
