Academy of Peer Services
New APS Team Member
In the past week we were excited to welcome the newest member of our Instructional Design team, Athena Anderson! She is new to the region and landed about the same time as everyone started practicing social distancing, so she's looking forward to a time when she can meet people in person and go to the library and coffee shop again. In addition to her skills in instructional design, she is a Certified Feline Training & Behavior Specialist. She is always happy to help cats to help cats who would otherwise be abandoned to be able to stay in their homes.
New Certification Board Director Announced
The Academy team extends a warm welcome to Marshall Rosier, who recently accepted a position at the Mental Health Empowerment Project (MHEP) as the Director of the New York Peer Specialist Certification Board.
APS and the NYPSCB are separate organizations, but we work collaboratively to ensure the quality of the certification process.
