New director takes over at ATHC
By Bria Day
A change of guard took place at the Adult Training Habilitation Center (ATHC) of Winsted with Lori Anderson of Winsted filling the shoes of Steve Wilson.
She continued her education at St. Scholastica in Duluth, where she earned a degree as a social worker.
In the summer between her junior and senior years at college, Anderson worked as an intern at ATHC and was offered a job there after her schooling was completed.
Anderson returned to her hometown and has been an employee of ATHC ever since, with an impressive background of 14 years at the center behind her newly acquired position as executive director.
As the executive director, Anderson will be overseeing both the Winsted and Hutchinson sites of Adult Training Habilitation with 62 clients in Winsted and 42 clients in Hutchinson.
It sounds like a lot of people, but with a hard working staff, Anderson is confident things will go well. She doesn’t expect to make too many changes, she said.
Anderson is excited about the opportunity, saying, “I get to meet and work with many different people. Every day is a new day and it never gets boring!”
