I enjoy making a positive change in other’s lives. Assisting them in attaining a greater quality of life and achieving maximum independence.
I have worked as a case manager and Behavior Support Specialist for 6 years in the ID/DD field.
I’m a 38 year old *mommy* of 3 beautiful girls. 2 adult children and a 16 year old. The early stage of being a young mom was rough having a child with Autism, not knowing how to help her but I knew god would never give me more then I could handle! We did alot and I mean alot of therapy and somehow through the grace of god things starting looking better for us. I’m a Nana to the most precious 19 month baby girl and also 4 weeks away from having my 1st handsome grandson! I was married for a few years other then that I been a single mom most of my girls lifes! I currently have been with my boyfriend for 10 years. He is amazing guy!I always had a passion and love to help people so right out of high school I got my Cna and loved what I was doing. I worked at Nursing homes and home health. By time for my 3rd child I took time from working to be a stay at home mom but opened my own daycare out of my house and then I knew what my life calling was… To be able to care for children while their mommy’s and daddy’s was at work and help the children learn every day needs and activities was just a great feeling. After my last set of children went to school full time I went back to home health.I have currently been out of this field for 4 years as I’m a manger but I knew something was missing and it’s my love to help people.
I have an daughter with Autism who was non verbal and had behavioral issues but has overcame that is now they have her listed as high functioning. I have been a Cna since I was 18 till the last 5 years, now I’m currently a manger. In that time I also had my own daycare for 8 years where I had children with Adhd, Autism and behavioral issues..
