Our Team continues to “think outside the box” to find ways to better serve our emergency services personnel. So much that we say we actually believe we “live outside the box”; listening, watching and searching for better ways to help those we serve. Some of those programs include our “Operation Zzz” weighted blankets, our “Step Up & Step Out” Suicide Awareness Initiative, our partnership with Equine Intervention and Lowcountry Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy, our “Day with Our Clinicians” and “A Day on the Hill” both training opportunities for our clinicians. We pledge to continue to find ways to make the journey to better behavioral health a positive experience.
To that end, we are excited to introduce you to our new team therapy dog, Nox. Nox is a 5-year-old Giant Schnauzer rescue. He has worked hard to earn his National Therapy Dog certification with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He is the “dog with the mustache”. Nox enjoys meeting new people and being part of whatever is going on. He is excited for the chance to bring smiles and joy to those around him. He is a big dog, with a big heart, and can’t wait to meet everyone!
Kelly Colley is Nox’s handler and they work together to as a Therapy Dog Team to visit a variety of people and places to share the simple joy a K-9 can bring. Kelly is a proud Mother of 2 children and is married to Adam Colley, an employee of Charleston County EMS. Kelly is employed as a Fire/EMS Dispatcher for Charleston County.
We are pleased to welcome Kelly, Adam, and Nox to our Team and look forward to having you meet them during many holiday events coming soon.
