Meet Monique

My previous position was a Program Assistant with an elder care program in Plattsburgh, New York. I was a full-time caregiver for my grandparents from 2004 to 2008. I started caring for my grandparents in my early adulthood. This caregiver journey helped to define my course; regarding my professional career and my passion to work within the human services field (particularly with the geriatric population). During my care-giving time with my grandparents, I utilized a caregiver resource center and the respite component. It was a lifesaver for both myself and my grandparents. I understand how beneficial respite is in any caregiver capacity. I am a huge believer and advocate regarding animal assisted therapy, I have dedicated many hours volunteering with Therapets, Inc. here in Plattsburgh, New York. I am currently working part-time as a Dog Daycare Attendant at Canine Adventure, LLC. It's a position I am passionate about and feel very fortunate to spend my time caring for dogs. I am able to apply many skills I learn working with dogs into my own life, it's a very rewarding position.

From a young age, Monique has possessed an incredible ability to connect with people. This care and compassion held our family together as she cared for our ailing grandparents in the final years of their lives. Not wanting to place them in homes, Monique dedicated herself to providing their daily care so that they could remain in their own home. During this time, our grandfather was battling rapidly progressing Parkinson's, COPD, as well as mental issues and, concurrently, our grandmother possessed limited mobility following a major stroke. Following their passing in 2007 and 2008, Monique pursued work with the Office for the Aging, as well as serving on the board for the local NAMI chapter. Providing care to the elderly has been a passion for her and she has unfailing provided incredible, compassionate service. Through her work with the Office for the Aging, Monique has availed herself of intensive trainings that covered an array of issues which face the elderly; from chronic pain to neurological issues to end of life concerns. In addition to past work with the Office for the Aging and with NAMI, Monique has dedicated herself to volunteering with Thera-pets.
