HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PART OF THE ASK WELLNESS SOCIETY TEAM?

🔴 About 15 months

WHAT LED YOU TO BE INTERESTED IN ASK/THE SOCIAL SERVICES FIELD?

🟣 I completed my social work degree at TRU in the spring of 2020. During my schooling, I started working at the Kamloops men’s and women’s shelter with CMHA where I found I loved working in this field. I eventually applied at ASK Wellness to broaden my experience and I’m still loving it!

WHAT MAKES YOU MOST PROUD ABOUT YOUR ROLE WITHIN ASK?

🟡 What makes me proud about working with ASK is to be part of a team/organization that cares so deeply for its community and community members. I most enjoy meeting people and hearing their stories about how ASK and other services in town have helped them turn their lives around.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

🟢 In my spare time I like to be with family and friends! Being in the outdoors, hiking, camping, time spent at the lake.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?

🔵 My incredibly supportive wife!

CAN YOU TELL US A FUN FACT OR SOMETHING FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?

🟠 I still listen to the same rap music I liked in grade 8.

Anybody else feeling a rap battle in their future?! We appreciate Connell and all the hard work he does for the ASK team - thank you, Connell!!
