I have been a caregiver for almost 4 years, working in assisted living facilities, memory care, and an in-home care. In my graduate program, I worked with Dane County APS, specifically in the Guardianship Program, and was able to work with people with a variety of disabilities. It was a great experience and allowed me to work with people with physical disabilities, developmental disabilities and frail elders. My passion is working with older adults, especially those with dementia, and people with mental health diagnoses.
County/Region I’m familiar with
I am from Southwestern Wisconsin and have loved being back in this area. I am continuing to become familiar with the resources and services in Dane County and the surrounding area has to offer.
Languages or Communication Skills
I have taken two courses in ASL and am able to have a basic conversation. My communication style is to get to know people and their background first as I believe this is the best way to establish rapport.
I’m comfortable with pets in the home
More about me
I have a very close relationship with my sister and mom; they are among my biggest supporters in every stage of my life. In my free time I like to visit my family home, but I also enjoy hiking and riding my bike on trails in the area. I love to travel and someday hope to travel oversees!
