Many of our clients have worked closely with former staff members and will be happy to know: that Melanie is doing wonderfully well in her new home in Reno, has a new dog Cleo, and recently completed her paralegal degree; Amanda is excited to be a first-time college student at OSU and looks forward to a career in social service.
