Organization / Affiliation
I have been working with people with disabilities for aver 30 years! I started while I was in college and decided that this was definitely what I would do as my chosen career! I joined a new provider in Pennsylvania and started working with people with ID who moved out of a state institution into a small group home. When I moved to Virginia, I joined the residential team at the Northern VA Training Center. I worked there for 25+ years and learned a lot about how to best support someone with disabilities. The Training Center is where I was able to help people understand the meaning of being person-centered. I was fortunate to be chosen to be a part of the PCT Implementation group to really focus on bringing this philosophy to all of Virginia. I currently work with Loudoun County’s Department of MHSADS as the Residential Operations Coordinator. I am a PCT Trainer and will soon be a trainer for Coaches!
