Christine Paul - 2013 MRA President
As your incoming MRA president, I want to introduce myself and say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
And… SAVE THE DATE – April 10-12, Grand Casino Hinkley for the Spring Conference
2013 is considered the year of connecting. As president, one of my goals is to increase a sense of community and collaboration within MRA so that our support and our voice is heard in supporting people with disabilities and that we may grow in our profession. I’m excited to have an awesome board.
A little bit about me. I have been an MRA member since 2001 and have held several positions on the board as well as regional rep for the counselor division on the NRA board. MRA has been an integral part of my growth as a vocational rehabilitation professional from training and networking to leadership development and I am honored to be president. I have been in the field for 12 years. I worked as a QRC intern with Askew Rehabilitation Services for nearly a year and have been working as a rehabilitation counselor with the state for the past 11 years. As a side job, I teach yoga and meditation. BREATHE!
MRA is only as good as its membership. I am always open to feedback, suggestions and thoughts and encourage anyone with new ideas to contact me or another board member. Even if you are not a board member, please feel free to attend a board meeting to learn more about MRA, become involved in committees and network with peers.
2013 Board of Directors, board meeting dates and schedule as well as goals will be posted soon on our website: www.mnrehab.org.
