I have 11 years experience working (full time) with individuals with developmental disabilities. In group, private, residential, community, transport and classroom settings. I am there for the individuals 100%! For their health and well being, but also for quality of life! I believe in promoting as much independence as one can have. When I have worked one to one or in someone's home, that was where I felt I could make the most difference. I have worked in medically and behavior intensive houses. I also worked for NYSOPWDD and am required to pass an extensive background check, which I have. I absolutely love what I do and have never been told anything other than I do it well. My heart is full when I'm caring for people. I get out of it what I put into it, if not more so. If I can make someone in my care smile, laugh or feel comfort, I feel like my day was a successful one! Currently on the path to becoming a developmental psychologist.
