On this month's "Behind the Desk" we would like to introduce you to Erin Martin who shares the Director of Operations position here at the Third Way Center. Joining the TWC team in October of 2003, Erin's role as Co-Director of Operations is vital to the overall functioning of our organization. As Co-Director of Operations, Erin oversees the software program that the staff utilizes, major construction projects, and helps with the policies and procedures. In addition, Erin oversees the USDA program, works on COA accreditation, and ensures that the Third Way Center stays up to date on the regulatory requirements that must be followed.
In addition to overseeing operations here at Third Way, Erin is a wife and mother of three. Being married for the past 12 years, Erin and her husband Jared have three children: Cole who is nine, Kennedy who is six and Grayson who is four. As Colorado residents, Erin and her family love to utilize the amazing outdoor opportunities the state has to offer. Together, Erin and her family enjoy being active through their participation in various sports or other outdoor adventures and travelling.
Those who do become involved with the Third Way Center are witness to a staff that works tirelessly in order to better the lives of the individuals we serve. After being with Third Way for over ten years, Erin notes that she has seen many individuals who have suffered immense hardships from abuse and neglect. When asked what fuels her continuous support for the Third Way Center, Erin acknowledges the amazing treatment model created by the therapeutic staff allows them to "truly work to give kids a second chance at life and provide them with the tools to become productive members of society." With the ongoing support from staff members such as Erin, the Third Way Center becomes a stronger entity that is better equipped to serve the youth and give them hope for a brighter future.
Thank you Erin for taking the time to share your thoughts and continuing to be such a supportive member of the staff here at the Third Way Center!
