    Heather A McMahon

      I'm an easy going fun loving person. I have two amazing kiddos and a husband that I claim as my third child. I love living in the most topographical state and everything it has to offer. I enjoy; skiing, snowboarding, camping, but I really love to float with my kids and watch the bald eagles fly overhead. I have been doing some form of administration work for 15+ years. I recently had the opportunity to work with Chinese athletes, I felt so good knowing I was making a difference and impacting each of their lives. I knew moving forward it was vital to my happiness to work for a company that contributes to making the world a better place.

      Rebecca Smith


        Hello my name is Rebecca and I am in my mid 30's. I have always enjoyed doing things outside and love sports. I have been in the field working with people with barriers for about 6 years now. Prior to this I was a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). I have learned many life skills and lessons while working with people and I enjoy training others and teaching them how to live independently. I previously was the client coordinator for this agency and I am now the employment coordinator. My job with employment is to oversee our employment specialist and guide them with the support needed through each process as well as obtaining new customers for our employment specialist. I have always had a mothering personality and with this job I am able to help others in a way that truly fulfills me.
