Caroline Drob is our Employee of the Month for March 2019!
Caroline is Caring Communities’ Financial Assistance Case Manager. She helps keep billing organized and on time so case managers can more easily assist our clients living with HIV. Caroline began working with Caring Communities in February of 2018 as part of our Early Intervention Services (EIS) department, where she performed testing services both in office and on location at various venues throughout our service area.
Caroline graduated at the top of her program from Marywood University in 2019 with a bachelor’s in Clinical Psychology. While there, she was a member of the Psychology Club and the Psi Chi National Honor Society (of which she is still an active member) and helped organize multiple volunteer and fundraising events. She also interned at a children’s outpatient counseling clinic that allowed her to work with diverse and sensitive groups, showing Caroline just how valuable education and prevention are. Caroline also works under the Office of Developmental Programs for a home health agency that provides care to people with intellectual disabilities.
This knack for care, prevention, and education made her a natural fit with Caring Communities!
Caroline’s work with EIS allowed her to interact with diverse populations and begin learning from other people’s experiences. These were key factors in motivating her to continue working in a public health-related field. Though she has less one-on-one time with clients and the public in her current position, Caroline still finds she holds an important role in helping our clients improve their quality of life by ensuring medical bills are paid and utility shut-offs are avoided.
When she’s not at work, you might find Caroline running at a local park, sipping tea at her favorite coffee shop, or fawning over any cat that comes her way.
Congratulations again to Caroline!
