Local resident, Soyenia Gibson promoted to Program Manager at People Inc.

Soyenia Gibson of Buffalo has been promoted to Program Manager at People Inc. Soyenia has been employed at People Inc. since 2000. She will celebrate 13 years in July, and has held positions of Part-time Instructor, Full-time Instructor, Treatment Coordinator, and Primary Instructor.

Soyenia’s new position as Program Manager will involve supervising the staff, managing program instruction, attending program meetings, volunteering opportunities, and engaging the community. Soyenia enjoys the opportunity to share personal growth herself, but the most rewarding is the shared experience through the engagement with all the individuals the program serves. According to Soyenia, “my job at People Inc. is so rewarding every day!” She recalls being in a class at Buffalo State, and hearing a guest speaker in the class speak about People Inc. “I went and applied as soon as I could…and here I am. Not long after I started I became so engaged with an individual one-to-one and helping them get acclimated to the group…his success finding a place, in turn proved that this was the place for me,” she said.


Quintella Cottrell, Program Administrator at People Inc. said, “Soyenia’s a hard worker that takes the initiative, is creative, service minded, and as a manager is committed to help others achieve their greatest degree of individualized success.”
