Judy and Julie-Wilton

 Judy and Julie are an unstoppable duo! The positive energy they bring to the team is invaluable! They are hardworking and organized but above all, they are caring and always put the individuals, we support first! They go above and beyond to cultivate and foster relationships with community partners and do everything in their power to make all community activities valuable, affordable, and attainable for all! They exhibit kindness every day in the work they do and are role models for the importance of giving back to the communities in which we provide services.  We are beyond lucky to have both of them as part of the OEI family. Thank you, Judy and Julie, we appreciate ALL that you do!
