Imagine!'s Early Intervention Rockstar: Daniel Reizenstein

Imagine!’s Early Intervention (EI) program has a terrific team working to create a world of opportunity for all abilities. To show their appreciation, this team chooses a “Rockstar” each month within their program. Team members submit nominations describing what the nominee has contributed, going above and beyond to support those we serve.


We would like to recognize Daniel Reizenstein as this month’s Rockstar.

Daniel is a great asset to the Early Intervention department. He is passionate about working with families and is willing to go the extra mile to support them in any way possible. Daniel has been extremely helpful in supporting new service coordinators. He brings a positive vibe to the team and is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed.

Make Your Voice Heard


Looking for ways to make your voice heard? Below are a couple of opportunities.

The Office of Community Access and Independence within the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) is currently recruiting members to serve on the Colorado Advisory Council for Persons with Disabilities. They are looking for members from all areas of the state with a diverse background, but all applicants are encouraged to apply. The Council is comprised of seven voting members and three nonvoting members who are appointed by the Governor and the Executive Director of CDHS. Three voting members must be either a person with a disability or a family member of a person with a disability. The three nonvoting members must represent three separate types of organizations that provide services to the disability community.

The Boulder County Local Coordinating Council (BCLCC) is looking for a caregiver of a child with a disability to serve on an Inclusive Planning Steering Committee. The committee meets four times at various locations over the course of August-December and their input will go into a five-year Boulder County transportation plan.

Imagine! CORE/Labor Source Longmont Employee Spotlight – Marrisca and Dani


Simply stated, CORE/Labor Source (CLS) Longmont would not function without Marrisca Juvan and Dani Smelcer. For the majority of the week, these two are the first to come to work and the last to leave. Not only do they do their specific job roles with diligence and perfection (liaison and communication between CLS and Host Home Providers, scheduling of staff and clients, transportation schedule, new staff training, documentation, community outreach), but they then go above and beyond to make sure our staff feel supported and comfortable in their roles. Each day Marrisca and Dani schedule themselves in classes, provide transportation, and/or assist with lunch and bathrooms. They model relaxed, strong, and confident staff members and in times of crisis clients look to them for support and are immediately safer because of their presence. Thank you to both for being the epitome of a good team-member and compassionate CLS employee.

Tina Fisbeck - July Imagine! Excellence Customer Service Award Recipient

Congratulations are in order for Tina Fisbeck, part of our Human Resources team, who was selected as the July 2018 recipient of the Imagine! Excellence in Customer Service Award.


Tina has an extremely demanding job - often without a great deal of reward. She supports every level of the organization in meeting their staffing needs even through challenges in the applicant pools or other variables out of her control. She represents the organization phenomenally, both internally and out in the community. She is always looking for additional opportunities to continue to make Imagine! an employer of choice. We are fortunate to have Tina out there working hard on Imagine!'s behalf to find us even more great employees always, but especially now, when the job market is so competitive.
