Winter Storm and Therap

The snow continues to fall across the region today as schools, business, churches, and countless other activities are brought to a halt.  Here in KC it looks like it will be a couple of days before things get back to normal as many will scramble to clear roads, drives, and sidewalks.  It is in these times that I am reminded once again of the value of Therap as people are able to stay up to date and current with what is taking place across an agency by simply logging into the system.  I hope you all stay safe today and take advantage of logging in and catching up on whatever needs to be addressed.

Snowfall in KC brings thing to a halt.

The Man, the Myth, the Legend retires at CDD

Last Friday, I was able to spend some time with some other folks in the KC area to acknowledge and pay respects to Jim Johnson who is retiring at Center for Developmentally Disabled in the KC Metro.  Jim has spent the last 30 years in leadership at CDD and he has provided to both his agency and many other agencies along the way insight and mentoring.  His agency was one of the first agencies to start using Therap in KC and since then the agency continues to utilize the software effectively in providing quality supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. Jim has been many things to many people as he has negotiated the many changes and nuances that are so very abundant in the I/DD field.  His leadership and insight will be missed and yet I am happy for him and his wife who may get to enjoy traveling even more which I know they are both excited about the opportunity.  Jim, I wish you nothing but the best!

The Land of 10,000 Lakes

Better late than never?

As my sunburns have finally finished healing I suppose it’s time to accept the fact I am no longer in Hawaii and share some photos with all of you from the Therap regional conference in Honolulu, HI!

Waikiki beach with Diamond Head in the background!

Kevin showed us around town the first night we got in. Here is my first Hawaiian sunset!!

The folks at the conference were SO welcoming and I had a GREAT time leading sessions on all things Therap with this group! Here are a few shots from the conference!

Plenary Session!

After the conference was over I got to spend two days wandering around Oahu! I enjoyed breakfast on the beach, a luau, a tour around the entire island (which included driving past Jackie Chan’s summer home!) and an entire day on the beach which I kept with me until my skin finished peeling a few days ago Emoticon showing smiley face Here are a couple more photos from my adventures!

At a beautiful beach just east of Waikiki!

Sleeping Dragon Mountain at Hanauma Bay! Can you see its head and shoulder?

Can you spy the sunburn shining through? The white bird on the left kept giving me kisses on my cheek while we were taking photos!

I’ve missed Hawaii everyday since I got back, and can’t wait to return!! The last couple of weeks I have spent touring around the state of Nebraska, which is very near and dear to my heart since it’s where I was raised! Last week I met with state service coordinators in the Eastern half of the state to discuss the new budget module and ISP (or IPP to all of my Nebraskans). I received SUCH a warm welcome from the service coordinators, to which I was grateful! We had some really great discussions about the modules already implemented in the state of Nebraska and those which are coming in the near future. I urge any agencies in Nebraska who aren’t fulling utilizing Therap to contact me so I can show you what this great program has to offer!! I’ll be returning soon Nebraska friends! Can’t wait to get some “hands on” time with the service coordinators! Until next time, aloha fellow Therap lovers!
