Christina Rivers, Project Assistant, just joined the Project Management (PMO) team and she’s already making waves in her new role. “The PMO team is lucky to have Christina,” shared her coworker, Jamie Galley. “She has been a welcomed addition and a breath of fresh air to our team. Christina is eager to learn and grow within Dungarvin and is always willing to help out with a smile on her face.” Get to know her, her dedications and the things that excite her through ‘5 questions with Christina Rivers:’

1. Why do you have a passion for this work – how so?
I take pride in being a part of ideas becoming plans, plans becoming projects, and projects becoming the reality of those ideas. The fact that Dungarvin’s “reality” positively impacts so many realities of different people — Well, that is just the cherry on top for me!

2. What would you most like to see happen in your state to better serve people with disabilities?
I am remote in sunny South Florida where there aren’t any Dungarvin offices (yet 😉). What I would most like to see happen is Dungarvin open an office in Florida. There is a HUGE need for supports.

3. Who are your heroes in life and why?

  • Jesus Christ – He literally saved me from death & divorce…Amen!
  • My Mom – Everything I am today as a woman and professional is because of her. She is the queen and rock of our family.
  • All my current and past veteran family members who served in the military. (Big military family lol)

4. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

I would say achieving my certification in Project Management.

5. What do you most value about the Dungarvin team with whom you work?

When I was interviewing for employment, my main concern was being able to work alongside experienced Project Managers who would be willing to mentor me and teach me the ropes. The PMO team I work with at Dungarvin goes above and beyond what I was looking for! They are so busy with so many different projects, yet they always find the time to pour into me. That to me is priceless.
