Chris Georgiou

Systems Administrator
"As someone who grew up with a parent, with a disability, it warms my heart to be working somewhere that I can play a role in helping others who may have been in similar situations to that of my own, or my mother's own. I know how far a little help used to go for us, and it warms my heart to feel like I can be part of an organization that can give that to others." - Chris

What is something unique about DRC that you haven't experienced at a previous job?

DRC is people-centric; they are more concerned with their staff's overall well-being and the people they aim to serve. The corporate world is all about the bottom dollar. Everywhere I've ever worked, I have always felt like another number; at DRC, I feel like I am a part of something larger and connected in an almost familial manner. I love working at DRC for this.

Tell me about an accomplishment that shaped or impacted your career?

The moment I became promoted to "systems administrator," it has been a life goal of mine for over 14 years to find myself an opportunity in this role. My supervision stuck their neck out to give me a chance, and I am eternally grateful.

How has your career grown since starting at DRC?

DRC has allowed me to expand upon my skillset and invested the trust in me (previously unseen by other employers) to accelerate my career in a forward direction.

Fun Fact
DRC's mission is very near and dear to me as I come from a family that would have greatly benefited from DRC's services. I feel prideful that I can contribute to DRC's overall mission and hopefully use my skillset to help make a difference in the lives of the people who DRC aims to help.
