I have been at Real Change now for just over two months, so I thought it was time I introduced myself. My name is Shelley Dooley, and I’m the new managing director. My friends and colleagues were surprised that I took this job. I’ve never been known as a visible advocate and certainly would not consider myself a writer. What I do bring to Real Change is 25 years of direct service to single adults who struggle, significant work in supportive housing and extensive administrative skills. When I applied for this job, I felt it was a long shot and never expected to get an interview.
