Check out what some of our employees have to say about life here at Groden:
Roland Nickson; Residential Manager, Cove Center
Why do I love working at the Groden Network? I guess I could say the obvious it is because I love what I do helping people with disabilities achieve their goals. I love watching the smiles they get when they are able to try and accomplish new things. I love the challenge of helping people change maladaptive behaviors.
I love working alongside people who truly care about the work we do and I work with an outstanding team of supervisors. And last but not least I recently experienced a medical incident at the residence and the concern of the clients was so genuine there were tears, questions and one of my guys who wants maintenance to fix everything said to staff as I laid on the floor " Roland dead call maintenance " when I heard I couldn’t stop laughing! It is the reason I love coming to work.
Andrea Neri; Operations Director, Groden Center Treatment Foster Care
I’ve been with Groden since 1986. I started out as a treatment teacher in a classroom and the following year was promoted to lead teacher, or something like that (these were the titles, back in the day).
A few years later, I was promoted to Supervisor. In 1990 I started working for Dr. Gerald Groden, as his assistant.
After 12 years working for Gerry, I wanted something different, a job that would make a direct difference in the life of a child. In 2014 Treatment Foster Care was looking for a program coordinator and I decided to apply and was given the job. I’ve been with foster care ever since.
In 2018 I was promoted to GCTFC Director of Administration when the Director of 26 years retired. The one thing that has never changed in my 34 years at Groden is the connectedness I feel with colleagues and staff, in addition to the flexibility that has been allowed in my work schedule all these years, especially while raising my three sons. The support of the rest of the leadership team has only reinforced my commitment and loyalty to Groden!
It is all these reasons why I love working for Groden.
Jadine Wilson; Clinical Supervisor, Community & Home Therapeutic Services
I have worked for the Groden Network for nearly a decade, and my experience here has been invaluable.
I started my career as a Residential Behavior Specialist in our adolescent group homes and now I am a Behavior Analyst in our CHTS program.
I have helped shape the lives of countless individuals from all backgrounds and each client I have worked with has helped to make me a better clinician and overall person. The best part of this job is seeing the progress our clients make over time and the joy it brings to their families. Knowing that we are making meaningful differences in their world is rewarding in ways that cannot be measured.
