    "Being a Senior Administrative Assistant at Seneca always keeps me on my toes. As someone who enjoys a new challenge, this position is perfect because no day is the same. Being able to see programs and the agency at a broader level gives me the advantage to find ways to solve problems or issues from a different perspective. The actual work I do makes my job interesting, but what keeps me around is the amazing group of people I work with here at Seneca. Nothing compares to working alongside passionate folks who care deeply for the kids and communities we serve."
