We are excited to share some changes to our Team at Wise this spring. We have recently welcomed a new program manager, Josie Sparks. Josie brings years of experience in employment and community inclusion program development. In addition, we have added a new position of operations and communications coordinator to the Team. Morgan Cain, currently serving as our accounting and administrative assistant, has been promoted to this new position beginning May 1 We are very much looking forward to the impact Josie and Morgan will make in their new roles at Wise.

Josie Sparks possesses deep experience supporting individuals with and without disabilities in various settings. She bring years of experience leading teams to explore and experience their greatness. Josie has worked with a phenomenal team that played an intricate part in supporting people in both vocational and community settings. She plays a vital role in challenging her team to help people with disabilities achieve personal goals, establishing themselves as contributing members of their communities and finding innovative ways to promote independence. Josie had the pleasure of presenting at the 2017 TASH conference in Atlanta, Georgia where her focus was Community Inclusion and the Pathway to Employment. When she is not working, Josie dedicates her time to her family and competing in Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe racing in the Pacific NW and throughout the United States.
