Profile (keep it short)

Why I am a Support Broker: I provide broker services because I believe in the possibilities and opportunities for people that can be realized through a plan for self determination.

My Experience: I first began working with people who wanted to do something different with their lives in 1994. I began using Person Centered Planning at that time, and I continue working with people to create lives they want. Some of the people with whom I have worked are the people who were pilots of this program, who have taught (and continue to teach) us how powerful it can be to dare to dream and do something different.

My Unique Qualities: I believe I am a good listener. I am open to ideas. I am honest - I will tell you what I think about an idea and how it may or may not work and then discuss what are our other options? I have a bit of experience.

My Philosophy/Approach: My basic philosophy is that it has to work for you - the person whose life it is. It isn't my life or my decision. This has to focus on you. And we have to work together - this is a partnership.
