An Interview with Misty Fitzgerald, Clinician and Supervisor

1. How long have you worked at Community Care?

Since 2/14/12.

2. What do you like most about your job?

I love the opportunity that I have to work with the clients and their families.  Family is a very important part of my life and if I can make a family that I am working with a little more happy together and able to manage whatever the obstacle at hand then I feel as though I have done my job!  Not everyone has the opportunity to do that so I try never to take that for granted.

3. What do you like most about Community Care?

I like working with the staff here.  They are so supportive and really put client care first and foremost.  You don't see that everywhere (which is surprising!)

4. Can you tell us anything about your family that you would like to see in your story?

I have a 2 year old daughter and a 5 year old son.  My son just started kindergarten this year so I am still trying to adjust to that!  We are a family that loves to go to the beaches, parks, really anything that we can enjoy together.

5. What do you do in your free time?

I love to spend time with my own family.  I think that this can be a tricky balance at times so when I am successful at that balance that is when I am the happiest.  I like to read and watch movies when I can ever piece together an hour and a half to do that:)  I also love to run!

6. What is your favorite kind of music?

I am a fan of all music.

7. What is your favorite place?

Our family loves to travel anywhere there is a beach but I would have to say Costa Rica!

8. What are a couple of things that people might be surprised to know about you?

I am not sure that I have anything that surprising.  I feel like I am an open book.

9. What are you most proud of?

My kids. I know that I am partial but I think they are really great kids that are loving and care about people.  That is really important!

10. Is there anything else that you would like to share that we could include in your story?

I don't think so.
