I have worked and volunteered in numerous areas of the special needs field. I have worked with a varying range of clients in both age and levels of physical and mental disabilities, professionally, for 10+ years. Working with this community is a passion of mine and has served to be the most enjoyable portion of my life. In the long run, I have aspirations to become a life skills teacher. My hours of availability are currently wide open and I am hoping to provide care for multiple clients. I have contacted DDD and will be able to renew my contract as soon as I have a client attached with them.
Please feel free to e-mail me any questions or inquiries and I will respond quickly. I can also provide my phone number via an e-mail contact if you prefer. I truly look forward to hearing from you and hopefully providing service where it is desired! Thank you for your time.
