Growing up my Grandmother worked in group homes. I was inspired to give it a try when I turned 18 and was able.
I attended South Dakota State University earning my BA in sociology. While studying I maintained a FT position in a local group home. There, I was promoted to Residential Supervisor.
Upon College graduation, I moved to WI continuing my supervision of a group home. 6 months into that position I was promoted to Program Director. I was able to touch more lives Directing numerous sites and sharing my tips and experience with over 100+ employees at any given time and seach site's manager.
I have been blessed with 2 fantastic daughters (4yrs and 2 yrs) and a husband who works hard to support us all. I was recently given the opportunity to be a stay at home mom her in the Alexandria area close to home.
While I LOVE this job, I miss getting out there and helping others.
I would love the opportunity to help you meet your occassional needs to remain as independant as possible.
