A Perspective From Our Staff: Brittany Saulenas
Meet Brittany Saulenas, a KDC Caseworker for the Foster Care & Family Services program. Brittany has worked in the social services field for over 5 years.
A moment that challenged me was when I was offered a school adjustment counselor position recently and I did not want to quit KDC. I was not looking for a new job when this opportunity came to me. I had interned at this school my last semester of graduate school and a couple months after being done with my internship, I was offered a position to work there. This is what I went to school for. When the opportunity came up, I had to make the choice between the school and KDC as it was a very tough choice to make. I ended up accepting the school adjustment counselor position and luckily, I was able to stay at KDC part-time, so I was able to make both jobs work!
A moment I felt proud working in this field is when children get to go to their forever home. It is such a happy moment knowing they are going to a family who is committed to adopting them.
I love working in this field with children and families. I love seeing all the hard work and dedication our foster families are providing to the children in their homes. I love being able to support the children and families.
The best part of my job is being able to learn new things from the children and families we serve. I am grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way and being able to learn new things. I also love being a support for the children we serve.
