“Lianne started out as my tech and ended up being an amazing coworker. I love that Lianne is approachable and so willing to help. She’s truly a team player and I’m happy I’ve gotten the chance to know her.” – Chloe Huerta
“She is like the encyclopedia of Visions and if you need something handled, she is the person to take charge and get it done! As well as being warm and compassionate with the teens, she has an infectious laugh that sets all at ease and brings up the energy!” – Heather Colligan, MA, MFT
“Lianne is always willing to go the extra mile. Lianne can walk into any situation and provide support and help for the staff and the families at Visions. Lianne continually takes care of many of the behind-the-scenes tasks that can go unnoticed. Lianne is always encouraging and a partner in helping Visions provide great care to the kids and families we serve. Lianne’s positive and disarming personality always makes my day a little happier.” – John Lieberman
“Lianne is our new Logistics Coordinator because she is the boss of all of us!! Lianne is able to step into any position at Visions and look at the situation with a critical eye for what is best for the client or company. Lianne has risen through the ranks of Visions because of her kind ways, sense of humor, and work ethic. (We overlook the Disneyland addiction!) We look forward to Lianne getting married and love that her fiancée is also a part of the Visions family. Lianne is just the right balance between fun and business and is just the kind of person we want for the future of Visions. Thank you for all you do…(and thanks for getting me addicted to Snapchat. I’m pretty sure that you are not supposed to have this much fun at work!)” – Chris and Amanda Shumow
Continue to read on for Lianne’s amazing answers to our 10 questions:
1: If you could have invented anything from history, what would you pick?
Post-its… What a great concept. Semi adhesive sheets of paper that you can write on and put anywhere. Genius!
2: Cats or dogs?
Definitely dogs. I’m allergic to cats and it’s pretty bad.
3: Do you sing in the shower?
Yes I do. I totally recommend it.
4: What is your favorite ride at Disneyland?
The Haunted Mansion would have to be my favorite ride. My favorite part of the ride is the room with the dancing ghosts. There’s also a Hidden Mickey in this room. I haven’t had too much experience with the supernatural. If I ever do, I hope it’s just as fun!
5: Which Avenger would you be?
I think I would want to be the Hulk. Not even sure why. He’s just really cool. Maybe it’s the calming green color.
6: What is your inspiration?
My brother Aron is a big inspiration. He is a physical therapy student at CSUN right now and totally rocks at the school thing. He’s one of the most dedicated people I know.
7: If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?
Flying trapeze. There’s something freeing about flying through the air and having total trust that the other person will catch you.
8: Roller skates or roller blades?
Roller skates. Although, I would probably be a complete mess if I tried to roller skate now.
9: Are you following your dreams?
Growing up, I always knew I would be helping people. So, yes. I believe I am following my dreams. Ten years ago, I would never have thought I would be helping people in this capacity. One thing I have learned is that God will give you what you ask for. It just may not be how you planned it.
10: Why do you choose to work for Visions?
When I started at Visions, I had no idea what I was getting into. I fell into the job with no experience in recovery or treatment. I choose to work at Visions because my ideals about people are challenged all the time and I am challenged to be open to the different people I deal with everyday. Seeing that “click” when a kid is finally willing and surrenders to the process is amazing. I get to be a small part of that process along with the wonderful people I work with.
