Experienced, Energetic Respite Care Provider
Since the age of 12 years old, I have been active in partnering with inclusion programs, Special Olympics, and respite care. I have a sister with Down Syndrome and a great Aunt with an intellectual disability whom my mother cared for in our home. As an adult, I have worked as a respite care provider, developmental specialist, case manager, and now care manager in Washington, Montana, and New York state. I believe it is of the utmost importance parents receive respite and support when in caring for their children with special needs. I believe in and practice person centered care, I am a Registered Behavior Technician, and have diverse experience. My hope is to earn a little on the side of my current full time position at a Family of Agencies and lend my particular skills to families who need specialized care. In my spare time, I read, run, teach dance classes, and spend time with my two rescue dogs.
