Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force Welcomes New Case Manager

On 01/17/2013

Recently, a case management position opened at the Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force and Kayla Fogg could not wait to apply.

Kayla always had an interest in HIV/AIDS and in finding ways to help those who struggle with the diagnosis. Before applying for the position of case manager, Kayla was all ready working at the Task Force as a volunteer – a testament to her  dedication to this topic. Since Kayla was  experienced with the work of the Task Force, it was an easy decision to hire her.

“Kayla brings great enthusiasm for this work and our population. We are thrilled to have her on our team. Welcome Kayla!” said Wendy Leblanc, Assistant Director of the Southern New Hampshire Task Force.

We asked Kayla a few questions, so you could get to know her better.

 Questions & Answers with Kayla Fogg: Medical Case Manager at the Southern New Hampshire HIV/ AIDS Task Force

Q: How did you come to work at the Task Force?

A: My interest in public health and HIV/AIDS led me to start as a volunteer over a year ago. Entering the position, I intended for it to be a short-term commitment, as I was preparing to leave for the Peace Corps. During the last year or so, life situations changed, preventing my Peace Corps departure,  and through a lot of ‘self searching’ and reevaluation, I realized that there are many life paths one can take and still ‘do what they love’. When the Medical Case Manager position opened up, I felt compelled to go for it. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to work with such a dedicated group of people, not only in the Task Force but as a part of the entire Partnership for Successful Living.

Q: What three words would you use to describe the Task Force?

A: Empowering, Dedicated, Resourceful

Q: What is a day like for you as a case manager at the Task Force?

A: I’m learning that every day you walk into the office will not be the same as the last or the next. At the end of the day, catching up on chart notes and reflecting back on the day’s events, no matter how hectic the day can be, I can’t help but be reminded of how self rewarding each day here is.

Q: What are some of the challenges a Task Force case manager faces?

A: Assisting our clients in conquering challenges and breaking through barriers are the case managers’ main tasks.  I like to step back and look at a challenge as a learning exercise. Although I can’t identify a specific challenge yet, I know that ‘challenges’ are what a case manager works through on a daily basis.

Q: Being the newest team member of the Task Force, what are you looking forward to the most?

A: What I look forward to the most is putting faces to the names of my clients and getting to know each individual.
