Specialties (e.g., working with autism, the elderly, employment for people with disabilities or youth in transition, mental health, experience with assisted technology)

Prior to coming to TMG, I worked as a Care Coordinator for 4 years and a Health and Behavioral Associate for 2 years in Alaska serving a diverse population of all ages. As a Care Coordinator, I worked with children, youth, and elderly who are experiencing disabilities to develop a plan that includes the necessary services that will help them become independent in their home or community. As a Health & Behavioral Associate, I worked with children and young adults who are experiencing behavior issues to find the appropriate way to cope with their anxiety and to make appropriate choices on their everyday life. These different positions have given me the opportunity to work with two different kinds of people, but with the same outcome of being independent. These experiences have provided me with many skills on how to help others be a success or in their comfortable zone. I enjoy seeing people accomplishing goals and having a big smile on their face.
