“I am 22 years into a 5-year plan working at SEKMHC. The reason that I have stayed is simple: it’s the people! I have amazing coworkers whose drive and dedication leave me in awe every day. The impact they have on those they serve continually renews my spirit. Being able to witness the truly life-altering changes being made in the lives of our clients is a constant reminder of how special SEKMHC is and how important our work is to so many people.”
