The spring 2019 IMPACT Team at Easterseals Northeast Central Florida is in full swing, and Courtney Gibson is proud to be a part of it!
Courtney is an administrative assistant with Early Steps. Early Steps is a program of the Florida Department of Health that, through Easterseals, provides early intervention programs aimed at providing support families and caregivers to empower them to help their children learn developmentally appropriate skills.
Courtney joined the Easterseals team three years ago. In her day-to-day work, she’s responsible for analyzing data, and scheduling and structuring information for internal and external distribution throughout Early Steps. She loves working with families and having opportunities to provide guidance and directions to those who may have uncertainties about their child’s development.
Courtney is thrilled to be a member of Easterseals’ inaugural IMPACT Team, a group comprised of future Easterseals leaders who are empowered to implement new ideas and to help shape Easterseals’ future.
“As a member of the IMPACT Team, I believe that collaborating amongst my peers will allow us the ability to generate fresh ideas on how we can productively grasp a new approach on what Easterseals has to offer,” Courtney said. “Working at Easterseals Early Steps has given me a clear perspective on what it looks like to be an advocate for children who require additional assistance.”
Courtney takes her position as the first point of contact with families at Easterseals seriously and with heart.
“I pride myself on being a resource,” Courtney said. “And, I’d like to be known as an empathetic listener who provides encouraging words to families and friends of Easterseals.”
Added Courtney: “When people think of Easterseals, I hope they are reassured that it is a dedicated organization that continues to break barriers and stigmas for children living with disabilities.”
