Search Welcomes Valued Team Members into New Positions
Search, Inc. is thrilled to share the stories of four dedicated professionals who recently took on new positions within our agency. These four women embody the passion, strength and character that our entire Search team.
Ashley Luksis, our new Training Coordinator, has hit the ground running already and our team is excited that she has found her new home at Search.
Ashley has over 10 years of experience working with adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). An ISU graduate, she most recently worked at a local not-for-profit agency as a QIDP in a day program and then as a Training Specialist for the agency. She comes certified as a CPR/FA and Safety Care Instructor.
Carey Frank has recently transitioned into her new position as a Search Supported Living Program (SLP) Manager. Carey will manage Search’s Highland and Kildare CILA sites. Just over 7 years ago, Carey began as a Q/Coordinator with SLP and has brought new ideas, a strong work ethic and positive spirit to the supported living team.
Carey brings a well-rounded perspective towards the supports we provide to the individuals we serve. Her wealth of experience at Search is a valuable asset to the SLP management team and organization as a whole.
Also transitioning into her new Q/Coordinator position in the SLP is Joanna Tabol. She will manage Search’s Church, Coyle and Sycamore CILA sites. Joanna began with Search as a DSP in SLP in 2016 and brings extensive knowledge to the program.
Throughout her tenure here at Search, Joanna has never shied away from challenges and is committed to always providing quality services for the individuals we serve. Joanna is a team player, a positive light and has always been eager to learn.
It is a pleasure to welcome Melanie Ausbrook to her new role as the Program Manager for our Kensington Adult Learning (ALP) site. Melanie has worked at Search for almost eight years, in direct service and supervisory positions, as well as in her most recent role as the agency’s Training Coordinator. Melanie’s energy, creativity and dedication will be great assets in the months ahead, as Community Day Services a adapt to the new normal brought about by COVID-19,
Melanie says that she is “very proud to have such amazing co-workers across all departments. It is rare to find people as passionate as we all are in supporting the individuals we serve. I look forward to working with the ALP team, as we create programs that are models of what Community Day Services ought to be.”
We are so lucky to have you!
On behalf of the entire Search team, we’d like to welcome Ashley, Carey, Joanna and Melanie to their new positions! We thank them for their dedication to the mission of Search today and every day.
