CONGRATULATIONS LISA, VINCENT & CHRISTINA!


Let's take a minute and get to know them a little better ...


 

LISA ANTELO - FINANCE

What does working for MIND 24-7 mean to you?

Working for MIND 24-7 means that my contributions make a difference. It means that I am constantly challenged and supported by an amazing team of individuals. It means working for a company that puts patients and employees first.


What inspires you to wake up and come to work every day?

The MIND 24-7 mission! Knowing that my work contributes to providing underserved populations with access to mental health services is motivating, and it inspires me to do my best every day. From the top down, everyone wants to make this mission a reality. The leadership has cultivated a unique culture where we all function with this purpose in mind.


Tell us something interesting about yourself that not many people know.

I have a great interest in animal behavior and am passionate about animal welfare. I love all animals - even those without fur!


 

VINCENT EKSTROM - BHMP





"Extremely kind and respectful to parents and patients alike. Can make people in crisis feel heard and feel safe." - Zachary Call

What does working for MIND 24-7 mean to you?

To me, working for MIND 24-7, means working towards innovation and leadership for mental health. I have long seen many challenges in the mental health field and am excited about the opportunity that this company presents to make positive changes to archaic systems. For too long, mental health has been on the back burner in society, hidden away. So, to me we are not only serving those in mental health crises, but promoting and furthering the discussion around mental health in society as a whole, which will hopefully lead us to more positive outcomes in the future.


What inspires you to wake up and come to work every day?

I have worked in various roles in healthcare but none has given me as much joy and satisfaction as my current work. To me, working with children and adolescents is a privilege and is one of the most significant and meaningful things that we could be doing. I am inspired by the opportunity to offer hope to others; that despite the challenges that many our clients have been through, that there is possibility for change and a better vision of life for the future. I am inspired by the determination and strength that I see in so many of the people that we serve.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that not many people know.

Well, most people who have interacted with me at this point surely knows that I am a golf fanatic, so I won’t speak too much about that subject. When I was 12yrs old my family moved to the west part of England (Somerset), and lived there for about 3 years. I spent my freshman and sophomore year of high school living at a boarding school just outside of London and would travel on a 3 ½ hour train ride back to see my family every few weeks. My roommates and friends at school were from places such as Turkey, South Korea, Russia, and many other continents and countries across the world. To this day, I cite these several years as some of the most influential in my life.


 

CHRISTINA RUCKER - NURSING





"Christina consistently puts a smile on her face in the most difficult of situations. Christina also has an infectious positivity that she brings to work every day thereby infecting the rest of us on the team and the patients with a positive attitude. I’m grateful to have her on our team regardless of facility location, she has been a great addition to MIND 24-7." - Adam Perkins

What does working for MIND 24-7 mean to you?

It means I get to make a difference. Mental health is my passion and I am excited about MIND 24-7's vision and am grateful to be along for the ride.


What inspires you to wake up and come to work every day?

MY FAMILY - I love my kids and want to be the example for what hard work and dedication can do for you. MY TEAM - I have a passionate group of nurses and they inspire me to be better everyday.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that not many people know.

I'm told I have an intoxicating laugh. I have three great sons, ages 25, 12, & 10 (15 year age gap from oldest to youngest).
