The Land of 10,000 Lakes

I was able to spend a fantastic week and a half in Minnesota with 3 awesome new providers who are beginning to use Therap! It was also a nice escape from the Midwestern heat and you cannot beat scenery like this…

My week started out at Access of the Red River Valley, then I spent a few days at Synstelin Community Services, and ended my week and a half with Connections of Moorehead.

Connections is going green with Therap!

Training at Connections!

So excited to welcome these 3 awesome agencies to Therap!! Also, thanks to the folks at Connections for suggesting I spend my weekend in Minnesota here…

Wild West Tour Through Nebraska

This past week Sazzad, Jordan and I have been meeting with Service Coordinators and Providers throughout the Husker State. It has been a great week as we have looked at how the state is presently using the new Intake and Referral pieces as well as look at some new items we are working on for the state. Discussions around the ISP and the IB have very good and enlightening as we continue to draw closer to the new release that is about a month away now. Some very exciting things are going to be coming out in this new release and we provide multiple profiles that a user can switch between. It is going to be really great.

The trip ended with Jordan driving all the way back from Scottsbluff (hang in there Kid) and Sazzad, Justin and myself jumping on a small plane in Scottsbluff, NE to fly into Denver where we went our different ways. They headed to MT and I headed back to KCMO to attend the upcoming new CER that the state is releasing. Now before you get to excited MO providers, it is another paper form…i know!!!! Oh well, the good journey continues seeking to bring effeciencies in a paperless fashion to the Midwest.

Off to Denver after great meetings across Nebraska

Our Thoughts go out to RSI and others in Duluth, MN

To say that the reports and pictures from Duluth are shocking is an understatement. To see the area in the pictures compared to what I saw in the area just a couple of weeks ago is hard to put into perspective. Our thoughts go out to RSI and others in the Duluth area as they try to dry out and put things back together. Click on the link below to see more…

It’s so close I can smell it!

Southern Hospitality & Midwest Memories

I was able to spend some time with the awesome people of The Charles Lea Center in South Carolina a few weeks ago and discovered southern hospitality was no joke! When leaving The Charles Lea Center it felt like leaving family, even though Stacey and I were only there a few days.

Stacey and I also enjoyed pizza as big as our faces at Venus Pie Pizzeria in Spartanburg, SC!

New York Style Pizza!

Last week Jeff, Justin, and I spent a few days training the Service Coordinators in Lincoln, NE! We reviewed GER’s and management summaries with them. Nebraska will also soon begin using a referral module created for them by Therap. The Service Coordinators seemed very excited and we had many ask when they would be able to use even more parts of the system.

However, my favorite part about getting to go to Lincoln for work is seeing my family! My second favorite part is getting to see my cute doggy who is living with her grandparents until I have a little more time to hang out with her!

I am spending this week in Minnesota! Check back next week for photos of the amazing agencies I am working with here this week!

The last few weeks

Hello Everyone! Sorry about the lack of posts! The last few weeks have been quite busy! Chris and I were in St. Louis training the great staff at Bridges Community Support Services for a few days at the end of February.

Bridges Community Support Services

The morning started off quite interesting with Theresa setting off the alarm to the building, but all of that was taken care of and Chris and I were able to train even with the ringing in our ears :) We also ate at a fantastic little Thai Restaurant that I would highly suggest to anyone in the area called “Pearl Cafe”. Thanks for all of the help Theresa!

Chris & Theresa

After St. Louis I spent some time with another fellow trainer Stephen Flanigan in New York. We spent the week training with Heritage Christian Services.

We received a very warm welcome complete with Therap colored balloons and a TON of great food and snacks every time we turned around

Heritage Christian Services

Thanks especially to Liz for being such a great host!!  Since it was my first time to Buffalo (and Rochester) Stephen was kind enough to take me to Niagara Falls after training one evening. Thanks to daylight savings it was still light out when we got there and we walked around the falls until dark. Thanks Stephen

Niagara Falls!

Me at Niagara Falls for the first time!

Lastly! I spent a few days last week in the Wisconsin Dells at the fabulous Kalahari Resort for the Rockin WALA Conference! I chatted with a lot of really great providers. The Dells looked like they would be quite fun to go to in the summer time, although I feel I lucked out with a 75 degree week in Wisconsin in March! I look forward to visit again sometime soon to do some on site training :) Hope everyone has had a fabulous March, I personally can’t believe it’s almost over!
