Isy understands the importance of being authentic, intuitive, and determined. As the Manager of the Child and Youth Program Isy leads her team with the philosophy:

Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. (Rita Pierson, 2013).

Isy believes the power of human connection strongly impacts everyone. Through human connection we gain a sense of belonging, our identity, and strong support network.  Isy’s believes that empowerment can be gained through the sharing and owning of one’s story.  She is excited to continue her work with her team at Some Other Solutions in providing a space for everyone to feel connected, share their story, and be the strong pillar in one’s life.
