Kristen’s email goes on to talk about these staff changes:

In addition, we have welcomed some familiar faces under our wing officially. We have always felt that our audit team, Todd Sprinkle and Jeanne Watson, were part of the Community Corrections division’s team and now they are officially!

With mixed emotions we announce that Giana Bender and Alan Murphy have accepted positions to assist with SRS deployment. Giana’s last day will be this Tuesday 4/17 and Alan’s will be 4/20. Please continue to cc them until their departure. We have already received great recommendations for their replacement and plan to have their positions filled within the month. In the interim, Liz and I will be covering the vacant areas.

We will also begin interviews for the remaining training members and CTP administrative assistant next week.
