Meet Nicole—LVRC’s friendly, compassionate and wise client care coordinator.
Every couple of months, the parent company of Las Vegas Recovery Center (LVRC), Central Recovery (CR), selects an employee to feature in our bi-monthly “Employee Spotlight.” This month, CR has interviewed Client Care Coordinator Nicole Davis. 1. What made you decide to come to work at Central Recovery? My passion for saving lives and the opportunities offered for growth at LVRC. This company wants their employees to be successful and fosters their growth by encouraging them to achieve their dreams and aspirations. 2. What do you like best about your current position? I love the client/family interaction and being able to share the message of hope. 3. Describe how your position contributes to the CR mission. Being a Client Care Coordinator/ Utilization Review Specialist means that my duties often seem endless. I strive to meet the clients and their families with compassion, understanding, and a smile. I want everyone who walks through the doors to feel comfortable and safe. I show them that LVRC staff and I are here to give them the best service possible so that the client and the family can begin the journey of recovery, as addiction is a family disease and all suffer. 4. What is your biggest success story at CR? Every day is a success to me. Every day I see hopeless and lost people come to treatment scared, anxious and defeated, and when they leave our time together smiling, laughing, and unafraid, that is priceless and a success in my eyes. 5. Do you have any long-term goals for the department? If so, please describe. I am working on becoming a CADC-1 (intern). I need to start there. And maybe one day I can be a Licensed Social Worker with a minor in substance use addiction for LVRC.
6. How do you measure your own success? “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he/she have overcome” Booker T. Washington. Every day that I am ALIVE and PRESENT for my family, friends, and self and not self-destructing is a success. I have worked very hard to get to where I am today. However, the most important thing to me is being present in my family members’ lives. 7. Describe the leadership skills you feel you have. I believe I lead by lifting others up and learning from others. I have patience and compassion to meet people where they are at and guide them to be successful. I am a team player that does not strive to be better than others—just to be a better person than I was the day before. 8. What is the wildest idea you have had in the past year outside of work? My wild side was in my 20s. Today, the wildest thing is talk of walking down into the Grand Canyon on that intense trail—such beauty. That’s a challenge of endurance for me. 9. What do you like to do in your free time? I love to travel and explore the earth as well as relax, meditate, watch The Flix on Netflix, hike new places, see concerts, and visit my family and friends who live in California as much as possible. 10. Tell us one thing that people may not know about you. I am a bit of a thrill seeker. I was fortunate to be able to skydive with some girlfriends back home. We all survived.
