Robyn Slocom, Senior Program Manager, joined Wise in 2015 with over 25 years of comprehensive field experience serving children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a myriad of roles. BA degrees in Psychology and Sociology/Social Work and a Master’s degree in Business Administration seem like an odd combination, but not for Robyn; she loves to both explore the “big picture” of any situation and to figure out how to make the “details” really work. She found a perfect fit with Wise, where she can focus on change management, capacity building, consulting, training, and empowering people. She loves to apply internationa perspectives and Lean Management techniques to organizational and employment program practices, focusing on value-added and person-centered activities while requirements are met in a more manageable way.
