She decided to join the MCOI team because it seemed like a good opportunity to get out of her comfort zone and go meet other caregivers. She likes that this is another way to help people.
She used to be anti-Union, but then a member of a previous MCOI team came to talk with her about all of the different ways that her fellow caregivers were making a difference for themselves and those they care for. That’s when she decided to get involved and become an active member.
Being a part of a MCOI team is her way to “pay it forward” to other caregivers and find out what issues are most important to them.
“I want to get people to get off the couch and get motivated to be leaders in the Union,” she said. “Own your Union!”
