Scott Curley – Teacher/Counselor
When asked how he chose Lifeworks as the place to start his career, Scott Curley says that he was strolling through his college’s annual career fair and bumped into President/CEO Dan Burke for the first time! That was more than 18 years ago, and Dan was recruiting prospective students who were in the process of graduating.
“Working with this population was out of my chosen path,” Scott said. “I was a senior studying sociology at Bridgewater State, but, nonetheless, I chose Lifeworks. Over the years, my career choice certainly has encouraged me to be a self-fulfilling member of a team to empower a person’s quality of life.”
Through all these years, Scott has been a dedicated employee, working as a teacher/counselor at Rockwood House and at the Cavell Street residence.
“I’ve enjoyed my time at both homes,” he said. “The residents from both programs could not be any more different, which is always a credit to the personalities of the individuals we serve. The best part of the job, is leaving at the end of my shift feeling that I made some form of positive contribution in someone’s day.”
“Equally satisfying, is being able to witness the hidden gifts of residents, the people we serve,” Scott added. “They have hidden talents and from my perspective, a deeper empathy towards others. I see this displayed while assisting the Rockwood residents with their art therapy, craft projects, or when they perform in various types of sports activities.”
