L.I.F.E. Services are designed to respond to the natural rhythm of a person’s life, and adjusts supports provided over time in response to people's changing goals and needs. The supports offered through L.I.F.E. services enable people to personalize, direct and evaluate their services in a way that works for them.

A L.I.F.E. Services Supervisor candidate should have a knack for unconventional problem solving and huge reservoir of ideas I am eager to share. I am up to date on all of the current best practices around supporting people to connect in community, expand their informal support circles and find work, and yet I am ready to push forward and invent the next best practices. My knowledge, experience and insights fuel my forward movement rather than anchor me in place. I am happy with a flexible work schedule based within Greater Vancouver/Lower Mainland. I am savvy with technology and comfortable connecting with others virtually.
And, I have the energy and optimism to start something new!
