Get to Know Loretta McCrackin, Team Lead
Loretta McCrackin works with the adults served by Lakemary as a Team Lead at our Lone Elm location. She also coaches other staff members, helping them grow and expand their skills. Seeing the adults smile is the best part of her day, and she knows she’s making a difference.
When an adult started exhibiting challenging behavior, McCrackin took a proactive approach. “He was repeating everything his peers were saying just to upset them. I took the time to visit with him and show him that no matter what, I would always be there for him to talk to.” The adult began to trust McCrackin and seek her out to talk. His challenging behavior stopped, and the two of them now have a great relationship.
“It’s a very rewarding position,” says McCrackin. “Most of the time, it doesn’t feel like a job because it’s so enjoyable. I wish there were more hours in the day!”
