“Whaaaat? That’s awesome! I’m so honored!”
Kiley is a wonderful asset to our crisis services call center, providing energy and positivity to her fellow “liners” and staff. Let’s learn a little more about Kiley and why she chooses to volunteer at NRS.
How did you first become involved with NRS? I was searching for a volunteer opportunity in which I could branch out and help other people. Helping kids, specifically, was really appealing to me.
Fun Fact: I have a cute cat with a pink nose named Simone deBeauvoir. Also, I’m simultaneously in an Andrews Sisters cover band as well as an electronic dance music cover band, creating a strange dichotomy of music in my head.
What have you found is your strongest skill as a liner? I quickly empathize with callers, see things from their point of view. Hopefully, that makes them feel safe and heard.
What would make your experience better? I wish I had more time to dedicate to NRS and furthering my education with extra seminars and events.
Open Mic Moment: I love to travel! If you see me in the crisis services center tell me your favorite place you’ve been.
What keeps you coming back? The kids and families I speak to on the lines need people to talk to. Sometimes they need a lot more than that, so I feel it’s the least I can do to listen and help when I can.
