Kitty Cannon

What originally made you want to work with EA Family Services? 

I wanted something that would offer stability in hours and weekends off so I could spend time with family. At the time I knew nothing about the foster care system, but I was willing to take leap of faith and go all in. It's definitely the best decision I made eleven years ago!

What does your best day on the job look like?

The best day for me is when I get hugs from kiddos that come into the office when visiting with their parents. 

What do you wish people knew about your job?

There's a lot more to job than just filing and paper pushing. 

How do you practice self-care?

That's something I need to remember to do more often, this question is a great reminder of that. Going to the gym and relaxing in the sauna is great for my soul. 

What's something about you that would surprise most people? 

I secretly want to learn how to surf, although now it's not a secret!
