About Sarah

I have more than 10 years experience working (full time) with individuals with developmental disabilities. In group, private residential, community and classroom settings. Also in transportation. I have been told that my compassion towards them is extremely apparent. I am there for the individuals 100%. For their health and well being but also for quality of life. I also believe that promoting as much independence as one can have. When I have worked one to one or in someone's home that was where I felt I could make the most difference. I have worked in medically intensive houses as well as behavior intensive. I also worked for NYSOPWDD and am required to pass an extensive background check, which I have. I absolutely love what I do and have never been told anything other than I do it well. My heart is full when I'm caring for people. I get out of it what I put into it, if not more so. If I can make someone in my care smile, laugh or feel comfort I feel like my day was a successful one!
