Jamie started with Washington County Connections in April of 2008. She was drawn to her passion for serving youth in our community. Jamie started out working at AJ’s the Youth Center in Akron and provided everything from prevention education programs to quarterly celebrations, K-4 after school craft program for kiddos k-4th grades, and youth coalitions. Since 2008 Jamie has continued to grow her passion for youth while developing professionally and adding more programming and skills to her toolbox. She has also provided Literacy Activities, Teen baseline, and Health and Safety Fairs in Washington and Yuma Counties. Jamie is now the senior facilitator and Train the Trainer for the Cooking Matters Program. She is, also, the Financial Officer for Rural Communities Resource Center. Jamie has most recently been trained in the Incredible Years parenting curriculum and is excited to start implementing this course for parents in January 2018.
Tiffany has been with Washington County Connections since November 2015. She is the first smiling face you will see when you walk through the door and the friendly voice when you call! Tiffany wears many “hats” at WCC in addition to all the duties assigned to the roles of Administrative Assistant and Family Advocate. Part of her role is Transcriber and Designer for our monthly meetings including Joint staff, WCC staff, and Action Team. Tiffany is also the Colorado Community Response family advocate on staff. Along with assisting Jamie with the financials she also maintains the in-house Food Bank and co-coordinates the monthly Mobile Pantry offered through the Food Bank of the Rockies. Tiffany grew up and is now raising her family in Akron and would love to give back to the community in any way she can. Some of the ways she is able to give back are being at school registrations, helping with school supplies, and promoting Child Abuse Prevention. Tiffany is, also, training future babysitters of this area by facilitating the B.L.A.S.T program. Most recently, thanks to some great funding, Tiffany took on the role of being the senior facilitator of our new Nurturing Fathers program. She looks forward to creating life-long relationships and memories at Washington County Connections.
