For the City Times
The North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board (NCWWDB) recently selected Jennifer Krzmarcik as its new support to communities/recovery grant coordinator.
As grant coordinator, Krzmarcik will be responsible for the implementation of this four-year grant designed to support those recovering from substance misuse to enter the workforce. Through local partnerships, the grant seeks to promote a holistic path to employment for individuals impacted by opioid addiction or other substance misuse. The grant will also assist those who wish to enter the helping profession in substance misuse.
“Krzmarcik brings a unique depth of knowledge and experience to the grant coordinator position. Prior to joining the NCWWDB as grant coordinator, Krzmarcik worked for Forest County Potawatomi,” a NCWWDB release stated.
“During her time working in the Behavioral Health Department at Forest County Potawatomi, she held several positions including an adolescent and adult substance abuse counselor, recovery coach supervisor, and sole substance abuse counselor for both a men and women’s Healing Center.
“Krzmarcik also worked for North Central Health Care as a crisis technician in the Community Based Residential Facility and 21-day Medically Monitored Substance Abuse Treatment Program.
“While attending college, Krzmarcik was employed at ATTIC Correctional Services as a community service crew supervisor and interim case manager for the diversion program.”
Krzmarcik earned her associate of applied science as a substance use disorder counselor, and Certificate of Substance Use Disorder Counselor Specialization from Northcentral Technical College.
“Her work experience has allowed her to work with people from varying backgrounds and offenses, and her caseload has included individuals with polysubstance use, and those who are also suffering from severe, complex social and psycho-emotional problems. Krzmarcik strongly believes, ‘the power of the therapeutic partnership helps uncover the strengths and resources we all possess to bring about the changes we desire for our lives,’” the release added.
“I am excited to have Jennifer as part of the NCWWDB team. I am confident in the skills and experience that Jennifer brings to the organization, and that she will be successful in reaching the individuals this grant is meant to serve,” said Jane Spencer, executive director of NCWWDB.
