About Brienna

Hi, My names is Brienna but many call me Brie. I am a mother of two and I have a huge family with a mix of some developmental disabilities and health related issues mixed in so I started my passion at home within my family. I wanted to learn more about developmental disabilities so I got a job working as a direct support professional, where I worked for 6 years. I then became CPR, Firts aid,AED and AMAP certified. For those who don't know what AMAP is, it's authorized medication approved personal. I was also trained in seizures, diabetic and insulin trained, I learned about a variety of TBI injuries and so much about Down syndrome. I learned about the MOVE program and all the equipment needed for special needs and how to properly use it. I learned a lot of things including things about myself. I learned that I had the skill set and mindset to care for others in ways some feel difficult. I enjoy making a difference in the lives of others and helping them carry on with thee daily lives the same as anyone else . Making people smile is one of my best qualities, I enjoy getting to know everyone and look forward to meeting you:)

I found myself needing to care for my mom who fell broke her neck. She became quadriplegic. To keep her from going to a nursing home. My only daughter was 2. My oldest brother needed my help, no question I was there. These were very good years. I have worked in commission sales and real estate for over 20 years. I used a Hoyer lift it was invaluable, people must learn about lifting equipment. So not to injure their backs. I prefer to work in Denton with in 4 miles. I have a pleasing attitude and look for the same I understand difficult times and prefer not to dwell on them. I try to look towards more positive endeavors. I am open to helping care for a special needs person.
