Lesley Phillips | Human Resources
“The best part of my job is seeing each person’s individual accomplishments. Experiencing that joy makes everyday a success”.
Lesley Anne Phillips has been working for Turning Point Residential since 2001 and is the Director of Turning Point Alternative Center-- Mahoning Ave. She has taken many classes at Youngstown State University and has focused on Psychology, Social Work and Music Education. Lesley chose to work at Turning Point because of family members who were also in this field and she soon realized that she had a passion for “helping people obtain independence and pride in themselves” stating that “I [Lesley] truly feel that I exist to work in this field and appreciate that opportunity and joy it has brought my life”. Her favorite thing to do when working with the individuals is to try new things and think outside the box; “we look at what each individual is interested in and brainstorm with them from there. My favorite thing is assisting each person in realizing and creating their independence and personal goals”.
