More about me
I have over 25 years of working with individuals with disabilities. I worked as a residential case manager when first entering human services and have now been doing case management/brokering for approximately 20 years. I pride myself on the long-term relationships I’ve had with many of the consumers/families I have worked with of 20 years or more.
I believe in creating individual and unique plans for individuals to live the most independent life they can. My belief is if you get to know individual and their family through more informal outings such as going to lunch or coffee you will be an advocate for the person and their true needs.
Aside from my work in human services I have been a fitness instructor for over 30 years. Keeping your body healthy also helps keep a healthy mind and reduces stress. In my off time aside from working out, I enjoy spending time with my family which includes 3 dogs, movies, drinking coffee, movies and naps.
