Celebrating Generations of Family Members & Significant Others Working at Merakey
In our continuing celebration of the 50th Anniversary, Merakey wants to recognize the generations of family members and significant others that work within our organization!
Meet the Anderson family! Dad Bill and siblings Brittney, Marissa, and Ashley ALL work in our Montgomery County Behavioral Health programs. Peer Support Director Brittney Anderson has worked with Merakey for 7 years, Case Management Supervisor Marissa Doklan has worked with Merakey for 4 years, Case Management Supervisor Ashley Anderson has worked with Merakey for 6 months, and Family Based Therapist II Bill Anderson recently joined the Merakey Team.
How did they all end up working together? When Brittney was promoted from Recovery Coach to a Residential Program Manager, she convinced Marissa to apply for her previous position. Brittney enjoyed working with her immediate team, as well as with management, and she wanted her sister to experience that same feeling. Both Brittney and Marissa then convinced Ashley to explore a Case Management Supervisor position with Merakey. After meeting with the management team, Ashley understood why Brittney and Marissa enjoyed their jobs so much and happily accepted the offer. Most recently, their father completed his Master’s Degree and was looking to advance his career in the mental health field. Through Brittany, Bill learned of an opportunity to utilize his new degree at Merakey.
Having different personalities and appearances has made for fun and interesting stories around the office when they reveal to their colleagues that they are all related. Fortunately for Merakey, they do not take family vacations often or else half the office might be vacant!
Merakey is fortunate to have multiple generations of family members and significant others working together. If you and other members of your family, or a significant other works at Merakey, we want to hear from you! Please complete the Celebrating Generations of Family & Significant Others Working at Merakey Form and submit it to email@example.com. Don’t forget to include high-resolution photos of yourself and your family member and/or significant other. The photos can be of you together or individually.
