Hello and welcome to my profile page! Below is a list of my experience and qualifications. If you have questions about them or me personally, I'm happy to answer. I've been working as a special needs caregiver since I was 15 years old. I love my work because it's hands on, never boring and involves creative problem solving. I've worked with many clients over the years, ranging from toddler to adult. I have a natural affinity for those on the spectrum and have the most experience working with individuals with Autism. I'm a full time support worker and have been doing the basics for years- toileting, life skills, grooming, etc. I am a staunch supporter of staying active and limiting screen time! I've done a moderate amount of art therapy in the past. I'm passionate about finding ways to connect and have fun with my clients. I also have a background in neurotypical childcare and watching siblings. Finding the right match is so important; I would love to chat and go from there!

Meghan was so attentive to my son. She went above and beyond to problem solve with us how to make him successful at school (in his remote learning) and with social interactions at home. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! My son is at a therapeutic high school with high functioning autism and ADHD. He is a complex puzzle, but Meghan took the time to figure him out. I liked how she reinforced our expected behaviors in the home (which our son didn't always like at the beginning), but over time they developed such a special relationship and he grew so much under her care.
