Robyn Slocom, Senior Program Manager, WISE. Robyn 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. Robyn lives near Portland and loves to enjoy natural beauty with her family, whether it be camping, fishing, traveling, or her personal favorite, visiting a beautiful beach!
Seeking more independence or more success at work? Need some additional teaching and assessment strategies for success? Struggling to break down steps in a way that works for the business and the employee? Wondering how to foster natural supports? Struggling with time management? Processes or systems not working for you? Updating a strategic plan? Robyn would love to put her nearly 30 years of experience in the field to work and explore how person or organization specific application of systematic instruction and lean management techniques can answer these questions and more with you
