Jay Valente – Staff Spotlight

We've had the pleasure of being on Jay's team aka Seal team six since November 2015. Jay supervises 6 individuals and takes a  person-centered approach in working with his supports coordinators. This is important as instead of the supports coordinators fitting the mold of the supervisor, he has shaped his role to meet his support coordinators needs as they all bring different  strengths and needs to the table. Jay is not afraid to step up to the plate and back up a SC who needs support in a difficult situation or just be there for a SC whom needs emotional support. Hopefully Jay will continue his longevity as a supervisor as we could not picture a better supervisor than him!
