Hello! A little about me: I live in the Kingstowne area and am willing to travel. I work as an Employment Specialist for individuals with Autism. I'm originally from Pennsylvania but moved to this area several years ago to get my degree in Social Work from George Mason University. Experience: I work full time at a non-profit as an employment specialist for people with Autism. I have a case load of 24 individuals who have Autism and other special needs to help them look for employment and job coach once they are employed. I have done a lot of specialized training in Autism and disability services in order to be successful at my job which gives me a good understanding of how to interact and handle different situations while working for you and your loved one. I also worked as a direct support professional in a group home for adults Read more with disabilities ranging from ID, mental health, and downs syndrome (as well as experience with many other types of disabilities and mental health diagnosis). While working at the group home, I was responsible for showering, toileting, managing special dietary needs, administering medication 3x a day, cooking, and providing recreational services. I love to have a good time, go on outings, engage individuals in activities they are interested in and I can also provide in-home care or help with activities of daily living. I am a positive and upbeat individual but also know when your child or loved one needs a moment to themselves. I am a non-smoker, have reliable transportation with a clean driving record, certified to dispense medication, CPR/First Aid certified, and have extensive crisis intervention training (including suicide prevention training). Please reach out if you have any further questions!
