Interview with Korrina
Tell us about yourself
My name is Korrina Onstad. I’ve been an RBT since 2020 and I love serving this community! I enjoy working out, eating yummy food, doing yoga, reading, and spending time with my friends and family.
Why did you become a Registered Behavior Technician?
I have been passionate about working with individuals with disabilities for as long as I can remember. I find so much joy in seeing growth in my clients!
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being empathetic?
I think my coworkers nominated me for empathy because I care a lot about the individuals I am around – both clients and coworkers! I want to see everybody reach their goals. I have a lot of compassion for others.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
TEAM 4 Kids cares! It feels incredible to work at a place where I feel seen and appreciated. I have never worked anywhere as organized, understanding, and collaborative as T4K.
If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?
I would travel the world. I feel so called to explore outside of what I have always known. My biggest wish come true would be to care for and support people abroad.
