If you have called Calvary Women’s Services or dropped off donations or a meal, chances are you have spoken with Carrie. Carrie is the Operations Coordinator at Calvary, and in her role, she is often the first person people interact with when they contact Calvary. We sat down with Carrie to learn a little more about her and her role at Calvary.
What brought you to Calvary, and when did you join the team?
After returning from serving in Lesotho with the Peace Corps, I looked for ways to get involved and do good work in my home community. I joined the Calvary team in spring 2020 as a Residential Assistant at the Reach Up program site. Last fall, I took on the role of Operations Coordinator. Starting a new job during the height of the pandemic was stressful at times, but it was gratifying joining a team where everyone was working together to ensure the safety of the clients at Calvary. From Residential Assistants to Kris, the CEO, it was really one team working together to navigate such uncertain times. Calvary is my first job after returning from the Peace Corps and jumping in and learning on the job during COVID-19 made it feel like I was doing something to help.
