Profile (keep it short)
Why I am a Support Broker: To help children and adults with disabilities create a self-directed circle of support that inspires growth, independence and friendship.
My Experience: I've worked as a behavioral therapist for 2.5 years at an ABA agency for children with Autism, 1 year as a self-directed staff for Catholic Charities Community Services and am currently a Family Advocate Fellow at URMC's Department of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics.
My Unique Qualities: I have a younger brother who was diagnosed with Autism when he was 4. Now in his early 20s, he drives his own car, has a job and is working toward developing more independent living skills as an adult. This experience helps me understand the supports he requires as he transitions into adulthood and contributes heavily to my passion for serving people with developmental disabilities.
My Philosophy/Approach: Person-centered, Family-centered, Holistic models of care coordination.
