I currently work in a Residential Treatment Facility for kids with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and other dual diagnosis. When I started this job I had no idea what I would be doing, and within the first week of engaging with this population I fell in love. It wasn't my typical care taking (ie. babysitting/ nannying) but I was there to make a change in a world that isn't very well known. In my job we pride ourselves in providing top-notch care for those who aren't able to function with Activities of Daily living and teach them how to cope. I see all individuals as ABLE, not less, not different and I feel as they should be treated as such. I work in a occupation where you get a lot of people who don't seem to truly care and as unsettling that is, I want to be the difference, I want to advocate for those who can not and be the change in the world that I hope everyone can see one day.

Karlee has cared for my children for the past two years. I couldn't have asked for a better person. She treats my children with respect and dignity. Karlee is such a loving and caring person. She goes far and beyond her job duties to ensure my children are taken care of. At times my children can be a little challenging due to their special needs. However, not one time have I seen Karlee get frustrated or angry with them. My family is truly blessed to have found Karlee!
