What do you love about your work?
I love having the ability to set my own hours while also feeling fulfilled by the work that I am doing with the families that I serve.
What is the most interesting part of your job?
The ability to see the whole picture including the child’s performance in school, home and in the community. It helps me to understand where a break down may be occurring and the best way to support the client and family.
What advice would you offer potential candidates in your field?
It is also important to remember that the parents/grandparents/siblings are often the experts on what works best for their family member. If we sit back and watch/listen there is a lot to learn and when we work as a team, learning from each other and our experiences, the most progress can be made.
