At the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone in Fayetteville our team is phenomenal. Every staff member plays a critical role in accomplishing our mission—to ensure our clients receive the care they’ve earned. Our team carries out this mission with passion that inspires. Here’s a closer look at one such teammate, Kenya Forbes, Office Coordinator.
Tell me a little bit about yourself, such as where you grew up and your background leading up to joining CVN?I am from Fayetteville NC. My background in health care started when I became a certified nursing assistant (CNA). My daughter got sick, and I had to drop out of nursing school. While working as a CNA, I got the opportunity to see the administrative side of things as a unit secretary. I worked at Carolina Outreach on the administrative team for six years before joining the Cohen Clinic.
You’ve taken life experience and built a career to help other. What was your greatest takeaway from this process?My greatest takeaway has been watching the difference therapy can make in a person’s life. It’s beautiful to watch the change in a person.
How have things been going at the clinic since you arrived?Amazing. We have such a strong team, and we all work so well together! I have never worked with such an amazing group of people.
Have you faced challenges so far in your time at the clinic?Yes, we did a complete system change a few months after I started and had just learned one system. I think we all learned very quickly and made the best of it together!
What do you hope for clinic and your clients?I hope we continue to grow and stay on the positive path I’ve witnessed since working here.
What do you like to do for fun?I like to go to the movies! I love a good horror movie!
Favorite sports team?Tar heels! “The sky is Carolina Blue!”
