I am a graduate student at Grand Valley State University studying for a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. I have a Bachelor of Science in Recreational Therapy. I have a passion for working with older adults, especially individuals with dementia. I have worked as an aide in an assisted living facility and as an activity assistant in the memory care unit of a skilled nursing facility. I currently work PRN as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) at a skilled nursing facility. Furthermore, I have experience working with children and adults with cognitive/developmental disabilities. I have also been employed at a summer camp as a program leader for children with serious illnesses (i. e. cancer, heart disease, etc.). I am comfortable providing all aspects of personal care.
