I really agree with you about Pam hurtlng certain life's. Now the sad part is that Penny, Denise. Ivan and this so call new CEO is screwing up other people's life and nobody cares.VLI only has but one out of four board members that cares. I really think VLI needs a whole new board members cause the so call chairman of the board just agrees with whatever Denise tells her which that women is just like pam.Nobody has any say so at that place. And nobody has any balls to say anything due to losing there job..what a shame.I hope some eyes will open.

Who removes the Board? Other board members. At Southeast works the board are such a bunch of dipshits. They couldn't see through Pams story about how she rewrote the history books with all her accopmplishments. The board should have looked locally in the first place. It would be easier to check out`the persons credentials. Not the Southeast Board. That board is all probably still intact. I wonder if Tim would ever question why was there such a turnover in the workforce in 2012 during Pams reign of terror. The board would probably say the company line " They moved on to other opportunities".

I don't know who you are or if you worked at VLI or SEW. I know how you feel in one respect. It has been a rollercoaster ride emotionally since my departure from SEW. I know life has to go on for us all. I am saddened by all that has been said because of hurtful feelings. In the end those who have wronged us will have to answer for what has been done. I am sorry for what you are and have gone through as the result of you losing your job.

Pam has not gotten over with it, as they say the wheels of justice turn slowly, but they will get there. She double dipped to the tune of $19,000. for CARF and $20,000. for The governor's committee. Did she get away with it? It aint over till the fat lady sings..... She also charged car expenses that the board said no to and a large amount of personal charges on her own credit cards that she had the company pay. Someone asked what Does VLI do? They provide jobs with a job coach for disabled individuals. they match the individual with the job according towhat he/she can do and they also have a severely disabled group that cannot do that that they provide social and work services for, plus a group called ventures that goes out to the malls and to classes, etc. Did she get away with it? We will see, as I said..........

PS The company is reimbursed by the people (Mc Donald's etc) who hire the workers and are subsidised by the government.

When Pam came to Southeast Works I found it funny that she became the CEO of the company and not the Executive director I am sure that was at her request.Southeast always had an Executive Director.She probably had more power as the CEO. From what I witnessed she was all about the power.In New york Pam wasn't here long enough to cause any problems financially that I am aware of but who knows. I n New york if you are charge with embezzelment the Law generally is more interested in the money being paid back through restitution rather than incarceration. But it also depends on the judge and how much was taken and any previous convictions. It's sad because the only one that really loses in the end are the consumers and the employees trying to provide quality services to those individuals.

It is important to know where Pam is working now so this doesn't happen again. Obviously the staff at Southeast Works were smart enough to search her background before she could do any real damage. Only a matter of time before she goes to some other unsuspecting company. Does anybody know where she is?

Just be thankful that some people did there homework at Southeast works as well as some of the parents who cared enough to push this Board into confronting Pam on her past. If the Board would have done there job she would not have been hired in the first place.Pam asked the Board at SEW not to contact VLI as per my conversation with Bill Stachura (ACTING ED at SEW)) on 8-30-2012. MAJOR RED FLAG Board. The Board at SEW are the ones who created this mess.Pam is not going to reveal any negativity about her past when seeking future employment especially what happened at VLI as she worked there for many years. I guess those years would be considered lost years.

As far as VLI is concerned, it is to their credit that they do the work with the clients and they do it very well. We have had some enclaves for 20 years or more. The CARF people were just in and we were given a year of accreditation, (we could have gotten 3 years if the junk had not occurred with Pam. We are still cleraning up that mess) The workers at VLI are excellent. It would be excellent for Pam to fess up and repay what she has taken, for her own good as well as the good of VLI. I dont see how she can continue without addressing this mistake on her part.

Pam will be living a life of looking over her shoulder and never have any rest until she fixes what she did. The people at VLI were commended by CARF for their excellent work with the clients. They are good at matching abilities with jobs and making them feel comfortable doing what they must do.

I'm glad you guys were approved for your CARF. I know from what I have heard you people at VLI went through alot in the past little while. I hope that Pam never works where she has access to her company finances as this could spell trouble for that company. I think she will have a hard time keeping and maintaining employment if she continues to not be dishonest about her past. Again all the best to you all at VLI and hopefully you will come back stronger and be an asset to your community.
Get it right

It is more like Denise agrees with the chairman of the board, not the other way around. Who is the board member who cares?
