Meet our staff

Asnake Kintamo, Family Information Specialist

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

“Working with families and helping low-income families especially in education programs is very rewarding because we are the ones starting to build future generations from the initial point.”

Dianna Park-Bowen, Office Coordinator

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

I communicate with so many staff and potential clients via phone and email so I get excited when I finally get to meet them face-to-face. I am also grateful to be in a position where I coordinate with multiple divisions and learn about the various programs we provide to our community. It helps me to recognize and understand the importance of each role and how dynamic NH is. There are so many hardworking, caring, and dedicated staff here and I am thankful to be part of it.

Faiza Abu, Community Health Nurse – Aging & Disability Services

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

“The most rewarding part about my position is having the pleasure to care for such a diverse community of clients in making a difference. It’s more than just being a nurse it’s about developing interpersonal trust between me and my clients. As well as having that tangible satisfaction in helping my clients achieve their goals whether it’s through health promotion, nursing education or making sure they are receiving all treatments to have better quality of life.”

Rachael Parks, Youth Engagement Specialist

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

“It is so hard to pick the most rewarding part of my position because there are so many! But if I have to pick one, I would have to say seeing the youth grow; physically, mentally, emotionally, academically and more. I love seeing them go from timid to confident! Watching them grow to amazing artists, writers, athletes, chess players, gamers, jokesters, roasters, friends and more! I am honored that I get to be a part of that. To help them see how amazing they really are.”

Rocio Gonzalez, Early Learning Home Visitor Mentor

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

To see results of my work reflected in home visitors’ practice. I am satisfied when home visitors feel supported and want to continue learning to improve their skills to support our families. I also feel rewarded when I collaborate with my supervisor in projects for planning.
