Meet Kounandi. She is currently the Case Manager for the Settlement and Integration Department at CIWA.
Kounandi has been working at CIWA for a year, and she was connected to CIWA after being referred by a former colleague. She most enjoys being able to successfully assist clients by providing them with the services, supports and community resources that meet their specific needs.
Kounandi believes that the biggest barriers immigrant women are facing currently are domestic violence, stress, anxiety, and financial issues. She is proud that CIWA is championing the end to domestic violence. She believes CIWA’s programs are giving the women impacted a chance to speak up, and get the support they need for themselves, their children, and their spouses.
Outside of work, Kounandi enjoys Volunteering, fitness and Zumba.
