What is your role at Connections in Ohio?   

I am a Support Technician at Connections in Ohio

How long have you been employed at Connections in Ohio?

I have enjoyed 3 years and nearly 4 months of employment with the company and the clients

What do you enjoy most about working at Connections in Ohio?

I enjoy getting to know the clients so well that they become extended family. I feel appreciated for understanding my clients needs and what makes them happy, so that each day begins with a feeling of optimism and the appreciation is mutual. I truly love having a position that doesn’t seem like “work” at all but an opportunity to learn, teach, encourage and grow.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? 

In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors. I gather my children and we go on our park adventures. We take pictures of various plants and strange insects and rarely seen animals. For example, we spotted a turtle in a pond at the Garfield park reservation. My children are encouraged to use their imaginations and we have a great time!

What is something no one know about you?

One thing that my peers at Connections may not know about me is that I studied massage therapy, and I have been certified as an EKG technician and a phlebotomist. After giving it a fair try, I decided that I enjoyed working with clients in their homes more than I liked working with patients in a hospital setting, although I have plenty of appreciation for those who have the calling for these positions.

Congratulations Kimiko Blackmon!
