Your name: Chelsey Syrnyk
Designation and experience:
I have over 10 years of experience in customer service and early on discovered that my love for supporting others was a key factor in my enjoyment of it. I switched over to working in the mental health sector three years ago and haven’t looked back since.
What inspires you?
The strength of many people in my life is astounding, and really helps me focus on the best parts of life and to be able to learn from the not so great ones. People are so much stronger than they think, and I think it’s inspiring that we get the chance to show them that.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
I was never a lover of school, but rather I love to learn. I’ve taught myself many things because of this, including more recently graphic design. This also gives me the chance to assist my husband with his small business with this new knowledge, which gives us the amazing opportunity to not only be married but to work together. Another large turning point in my life was when I started working in the mental health sector.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I’m am passionate about all things creative whether it be drawing, painting, crafting or graphic design. I dabble in music, as it has been a huge passion of mine from a very early age. Travelling is very important in my life as I never had the opportunity as a child and now I’m trying to knock a bunch of places off my bucket list as we speak! My new-found love for Spin class has been a surprising and welcome addition to my life, and I’m a little bit obsessed with it. Last, but not least, I love dogs more than most people. It’s a little embarrassing.
Why do you think people should choose Eckert Centre?
Mental health is so important, and the Eckert Centre team truly cares and sees that importance. They’ve created a little family of their own there and are so welcoming to helping as many people as they can in an effective, genuine way.
