Shortly after joining Netsmart in May of 2019, Sarah Owings toured KidsTLC during her onboarding training.

It wasn’t until a few months later while surrounded by friends and enjoying the 2019 BMA Foundation’s Dine & Dance with the Stars event that her opportunity presented itself. A girls’ night out quickly evolved into an unforgettable journey of personal growth and connection to a Netsmart client for Sarah, as one of the charities included in the benefit was KidsTLC. It was in that very moment Sarah knew she would be dancing on the floor in 2020 to support KidsTLC.

Ivy Stansbury, Graphic Design FUTURE

This has been a way for me to get to know other FUTURES better and learn more about what they are doing here at Netsmart. Once I get back to my desk, I usually start by checking emails and checking in with my mentor and manager to see what needs to be done for the day or for the week.”
