At young age, I always had a compassion for individuals in need. I like giving back and assisting in making sure others' needs are met. For the last 16 years I have found myself involved with my passion of helping others. From, running groups at day camp with children, ages 5-13, managing a residential home with 6 amazing special needs individuals, ages 21-75, and providing crisis prevention and behavioral support with children throughout the state of NJ, I have found myself fully involved in this field since I was 17. I also was a sitter for a few years. I received an achievement award in 2001 from a s ummer camp/after-school care I worked, and made my mark, at. I have various certifications in Ddd, Dfs, Sub-Cert, CPR, First-aid, Medication, etc. I moved down to Florida in November and now that I've settled in I want to get back out there in the field I know and love. I'm passionate about care-giving. There is no better gift than helping another. ... more
