Professional Summary

  In my eight years spent working as a Developmental Support Aide I enjoyed my job duties in that title.  During those years I had the opportunity to  observe the DA I  and DA 2 perform their job duties while continuing to be proactive in all aspects of the individuals needs with a hands on approach. I discovered soon that I would like to  become a supervisor. With the encouragement of the DA 2 I  applied for the DA 1 position at RT 31. I was fortunate the position was offered to me. Since becoming a DA 1 I  discovered a supervisory position rewarding. With the realization that our agency will forever be a learning experience. My enjoyment of working with  developmentally challenged individuals continues to be a rewarding experience. I am passionate, dependable, motivated, organized person who is proactive in assisting each individual to do their best  to completes a task or goal, to be proud of their accomplishments and praise them for the effort they put fourth every day. I am proud to be a member of a organization that focuses on developing positive relationships and forming connections to help people with developmental disabilities live richer fuller lives.
