Meet the newest member of our Senior Leadership Team: Alisha McFie, RN, BScN
Mental Health Specialist
My name is Alisha McFie and I am the new Mental Health Specialist at Creative Options Regina. I have been a Registered Nurse since June 2018 and I am loving every minute of it! I have been at COR since March of 2014, starting in the role of support, then Assistant Team Leader.
In my spare time, I love to watch TV and movies. One of my talents includes quoting pretty much the entire series of “The Office”. I am a huge Harry Potter nerd and I try to re-read the series as often as I can. I like spending time outside and taking my dog for walks (when the weather is warm enough). I love hanging out with my niece and nephews and watching them grow and learn! I like having plans and schedules in my work life, but in my personal life, I prefer to be spontaneous and go with the flow. I am usually very calm and happy, and it’s rare that you will ever see me stressed or upset.
I have loved the philosophies and the culture of gentle teaching since I first became a member of COR. I am looking forward to spending the duration of my career with this organization and spending my life helping the people we serve!
Let's Meet Our New Creative Encouragers
Tony Grief has teamed up with Ben Sefton to bring Jam Night to the Studio.
Tony was born into a musical family so it didn’t take long for him to get into it himself. He had a piano and a drum kit at home when he was young, but he has developed an interest for singing and playing the guitar as well!
This is Ben Sefton!
The main things that brings Ben Sefton joy is writing songs. He has an endless itch to write new ones and it’s a very addicting thing!
Stay tuned for more details on this rad team-up as Tony and Ben bring you Jam Night in the new year!
Lauren is introducing Book in a Bag this January! If you love to read, write and craft stories. You won't want to miss this opportunity! "My mom and my aunt used story sacks as a way to helping me read, stay interested, and understand. It incorporates reading, drawing, crafting, painting and smiling into an educational way of engaging literacy."
Amanda has special project in the works: Memory Boxes! Be sure to join her in the Studio to be part of this creative process.
The Goal-to make a unique picture frame of someone special and share the great stories about that person with friends and the community!
The Creative Circus will continue on throughout the winter months. Be sure to join Cody on Sundays from 1-3pm in the COR Studio.
When asked why hoops, juggle, poi, contact juggling and toro flux, Cody said:
"The number one reason is personal non-competitive skill development. It feels good in the brain to learn new patterns, drastically increases dexterity and fine motor skills. Hooping gives great cardio. It's fun!"
