“Our new case manager, Stefani Cullum, has a passion and professionalism that I know is the perfect fit for the Las Vegas Senior Lifeline team. All the staff and Las Vegas Senior Lifeline are energized, positive, and compassionate, which were traits that just emanated from her during the extensive interview process,” said Lisa Popovsky, Director of Las Vegas Senior Lifeline of the Jewish Federation. “Stefanie brings a wonderful balance of education and experience, I am looking forward to her new ideas and creative energy.”
Stefanie is a recent graduate of the social work profession. She is also a new resident to not only Nevada, but also the United States as she recently moved to Las Vegas from Canada.
“During university, I worked for the Older Adult Services division of the Jewish Child and Family Service Agency in my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was there that I developed a passion for working with seniors and helping them to stay independent in their communities” states Cullum.
Stefanie has a variety of education and experience in social services. She has her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and her Bachelor of Social Work Degree. Most recently she held a position at an in-patient psychiatric hospital working directly with high-risk adolescents suffering from severe psychiatric and emotional disorders to coordinate treatment planning, intervention, and arrange follow-up services to facilitate a successful re-integration back to the community.
Stefanie said, “I believe that Las Vegas Senior Lifeline is doing important work and I am so grateful to join the incredible staff here. I hope to bring a fresh perspective to the team and I am looking forward to working with the senior population again. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be part of the Las Vegas Senior Lifeline and the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas. ”
