ARISE is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Seguin as Manager of the Oswego MSC/CSS/FSS Department, leading the Medicaid Service Coordination, Consolidated Support Services, and Family Support Services programs.
Lisa’s personal and professional experiences as well as her strong commitment to the mission of independent living and self-direction make her extremely well-suited for this role.
Lisa began her career with ARISE in 2003 as a Medicaid Service Coordinator (MSC). Two years later she became a senior MSC. This year she was approved as a broker and also began to provide OPWDD trainings.
In the community Lisa is known for her work on the Family Support Services Council in Oswego as well as on the state level. Lisa pursued self-directed services (Consolidated Support Services) for her daughter Kateri, who has Down syndrome, when this option was first introduced in CNY.
The families that work with Lisa have commented on her good listening skills, compassion and her passion for focusing on the abilities and strengths of everyone with whom she works. As a senior MSC she has been a great resource and provided guidance to her colleagues. We are happy to promote Lisa to this expanded role.
