Meet Maureen

I have a BA in Art, emphasis Art Therapy, Minor in Psychology. I have over 15 years experience working directly with individuals with intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome and physical disabilities.

I have a BA in Art, emphasis Art Therapy, Minor in Psychology. I have over 15 years experience working directly with individuals with intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome and physical disabilities. I have worked with very capable individuals who need minimal assistance and I've also worked with individuals with multiple disabilities who need a 24 hour plan of care. I also provide Adult Foster Care to an intellectually disabled adult woman; she lives with me.

First and foremost, I am passionate about the work I do and I thoroughly enjoy working with all kinds of people. That fact that someone is developmentally disabled doesn't change how I feel about them or how I interact with them. I am proud of the fact that I have a genuine regard and respect for the person I support.

I believe in looking at the individual's abilities, not their disability. I believe in possibility and I believe in helping someone reach their highest potential - whatever that potential may be.

I have a great sense of humor and interact well with others.
