Angie McCarthy joins Lakeside Packaging Plus as Job Developer assisting Associates with diverse abilities to learn and accurately carry out their job duties.
Angie has dedicated over 20 years working in the nonprofit arena, with an emphasis to serve the underprivileged or underserved in the Oshkosh & Fox Valley communities. Angie spent many years working at the Boys & Girls Club under the child abuse prevention programs. Those programs were then moved to Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin. Angie worked tirelessly protecting at-risk children while supporting & strengthening families. Programming included both in home & leading group based programs as well as providing supervised visits. Angie has always had a passion for assisting children & families!
Angie then took a once in a lifetime opportunity to start a new nonprofit organization by creating the first ever emergency warming shelter for the homeless in Oshkosh; the Day by Day Warming Shelter. This was a highlight in many ways, from the people the shelter served to the amazing, dedicated staff that worked overnight shifts seven days a week to serve those most in need, to the hundreds of volunteers that supported the shelter’s mission & efforts. Angie believes this was a fight worth fighting & continues to support the homeless efforts both locally & statewide.
At Lakeside Packaging, Angie will be responsible for working with associates with diverse abilities and helping them achieve their employment goals. She will assist with developing resumes, conduct evaluations of potential job sites, coordinate interviews in the community, teach and mentor proper interviewing etiquette and also provide constructive feedback on work performance.
