Employee of the month
Employee Spotlight, December 2015
Takeisha Starnes, Youth Development Specialist
Thank you, Takeisha, for your dedication to our mission!
Congratulations to Takeisha Starnes for being The Harbour’s December Employee Spotlight!
Takeisha began her journey with The Harbour almost 3 years ago, in February 2013. As one of our Youth Development Specialists, Takeisha spends every shift supporting youth, enabling them to reach for the stars.
Seeing the potential each youth has motivates Takeisha to work a little harder and spread inspiration every day. A gentle nudge in the right direction provides youth with so much, according to Takeisha.
“Knowing that I’ve helped make a difference in someone’s life is all the motivation I need to continue working with our youth.” -Takeisha Starnes
As a Youth Development Specialist, aiming for successful outcomes for our youth, is The Harbour’s number one goal. Assisting youth with education, employment, and daily living skills, are just some of the ways we ensure our youth are prepared for independent living.
“My proudest moment was helping one of my first clients move into her own apartment. The smile on her face was priceless. I hope to have more moments like this with other youth we serve.” -Takeisha
Takeisha is a consistent and calm presence for our youth. Our kids know that they can depend on her every day and that she has their best interest at heart. Her dedication to the program and our youth is unwavering and in this fragile period of emerging adulthood, the young women we serve deserve positive role models like Takeisha.
We thank Takeisha for her dedication and contributions to our organization!
