Our Team is Growing

We are  very pleased to announce that Joy Allen and Zoe Dobson have joined our team as the new Family Resource and Planning Facilitators.

Please meet Joy Allen;

 Hello everyone!  My name is Joy, and I am excited to be joining the team at BDACI in the role of Family    Resource and Planning Facilitator.  I bring with me a passion for making sure that people I support are heard and respected, and at the centre of everything I do.  I started working with families after completing my RPN diploma at St. Lawrence College (2013). Initially I worked mainly in acute-care settings, including Brockville General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Hospital. I quickly realized that hospital settings were not the best fit for me.  So, about a year ago I made the switch to community-based work and am happy to say that I have found the perfect place to use my passion to empower those I am assisting. On a personal note, I am a lifelong resident of Leeds & Grenville.  I live with my partner, 4 children, and our cat & dog. It is a busy house, and we all love to explore the many outdoor activities in the area – especially in the Charleston Lake area.  I look forward to getting to know the families who are involved with BDACI and building relationships that will last a very long time. I look forward to connecting with each of you soon.

And please meet Zoe Dobson

Hi everyone! My name is Zoe Dobson, and I am one of the new Family Resource and Planning Facilitators here at BDACI. I´m enthusiastic about joining this team and look forward to meeting and working with you and your family. My formal education is in Psychology and Recreational Therapy and think I may have found my perfect fit here assisting families and individuals in planning for the future and ensuring all people have a voice that is heard. I am fairly new to the Brockville area, working this past year in Kingston at Addictions and Mental Health Services with the Mobile Crisis team.  After moving from London England, to London Ontario a new challenge is something that I am excited to embark on.  When I'm not at work, I like to take to the great outdoors. You can find me hiking the trails with my dog or fishing the lakes by my house. Thank you to everyone for being so welcoming, I look forward to this new and exciting adventure!
