As a Board member since 2003, I am always delighted to have a chance to speak on behalf of Sound Community Services. When I originally joined the Board, it was my intention to serve a 3-year stint and then move on. Now, 8 years later, with the exception of a one-year hiatus required after every 9 years of service, I am committed to SCSI for as long as I am able. I have been a marriage and family therapist in private practice for nearly 30 years, and in that capacity, have had occasion to work with clients who, either themselves or their families, have been consumers of the many and varied services of SCSI. Time and again, both in my practice and as a Board member I have had the oppportunity to witness both the professional skill and the human compassion of the excellent staff at SCSI. In my experience, they are an exceptional team.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Interacting with a Board member who is also a recipient of the services SCSI offers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hopefully, see the agency able to raise more money to continue its excellent services.

I have been on the board of Sound Community Services since 2004 and I have been the secretary since 2007. My day job is as a neuroscientist, so to me it made sense to volunteer my time with an organization that provides practical help to the people afflicted with the disorders that I study. It has been my great pleasure to experience the caring and dedication of the members of the board with the majority of them serving three consecutive three year terms and then taking the mandatory year off only to return again. I think that speaks to everyone's commitment to the cause of caring for people with mental health issues.

I have also had the priviledge to meet with many of the employees of SCS and have seen their dedication first hand. They are obviously passionate about what they do and I hope to continue to work with and learn from them for years to come.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with one of the board members, who is also a client. She has made amazing achievements in the few years that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with her.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope to be able to raise more money to keep their much needed services available long into the future!
