Profile (keep it short)

Why I am a Support Broker: I believe that all people are happier and most successful when they are truly empowered to make decisions about what they want to do and how they want to live.

My Experience: I have served people with developmental disabilities in New York for over 30 years; as both a state employee as well as an employee of a private agency. The majority of my work has been in the position of social worker/service coordinator. My current position is medicaid service coordinator and support broker for a small private agency.

My Unique Qualities: Drawing on my years of experience working with so many different community agencies I feel I am able to understand and facilitate a process that may be overwhelming for individuals and their families.

My Philosophy/Approach: My favorite phrase in the course of service planning is "how can we make this work?"
