Profile

I have worked in the school setting, serving children with special needs for over five years. In this capacity I have had a broad range of opportunities helping students with profound communication and social deficits, including those diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy and children with other specific speech and language delays. Other past experience includes assisting my father-in-law move from his long-time residence into a memory care facility;and helping support and find therapy resources for my aunt who was diagnosed with Parkinson's. My most involved care, physically and emotionally, has included my daughter, who was diagnosed with Leukemia and required two+ years of cancer treatment... thankfully, she has been cancer-free for more than six years! It is my goal to meet an individual where he or she is at with respect to daily living situations and to strive for an outcome that promotes not only his or her well-being, but also a sense of support and understanding.
