Carrie Bultman

Carrie Bultman  I have been with NPI for a number of years now. I started out in Menomonie as a PCW. I was then promoted to manager after about a year. I have managed Program 4 for over 6 years, have been manager of Program 10 for almost 2 years, and have recently taken on management of Program 2 this past October. I grew up in Lake Nebagamon, WI. I lived in Minneapolis, MN and Cleveland, OH before moving back to Wisconsin in 1986. I have worked in the Healthcare field for 32 years. I began in 1978 as a CNA in Duluth, MN. I went to nursing school and worked as a Medical Assistant. I also have worked for Human Resource Center in Superior, WI for many years as well as working with mentally ill clients. I moved to the Chippewa area in 1995. I married my husband, Mark, in 1996. I have two daughters and a grandson. My oldest daughter works at the capital in St. Paul, MN as an assistant to a Senator and my youngest works at NPI. I also have a wonderful son-in-law. I have three Pomeranians that are my “kids” now that my children are all grown. It is important to me to feel as if I have made a difference to someone each day. Some days that is our consumers and other days it may be a staff member, a guardian, or any of the many people we encounter each day.

Adele Thermes

Thermes, Adele

 My name is Adele and I have been with NPI for a number of years now.There is a story behind how I come to do this kind of amazing work. I drove cab part time before getting hired here. Every day at 2:45 pm I picked up at REACH INC. a group of down syndrome guys and took them home. They were the most fun, and my most looked forward to fare each and every day. I decided at that time to look into care giving. And here I am in the most satisfying job I have ever had.

I am married to Randy, and we have 3 daughters, one of which works for NPI, an 18 year old and a 14 year old…I repeat all girls.. I also have 3 stepchildren (Randy’s) that are all grown, 4 step-grand babies, one more on the way, and one grand-baby on the way.

I love to see the consumers complete a task, and the joy in their eyes. I enjoy being able to help them get to the spot where they can complete that task. I also love to make a difference for those who are unable to do for themselves. Smiles are the best reward.

I hope to always make a difference!
