ARMHS and CTSS Practitioner: I got into this field because I had issues keeping child care when my son and daughter were younger. My son was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD and my daughter was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, anxiety disorder, Sensory processing disorder along with 3 rare energy disorders. Since daycares were not trained and didn't tolerate the behaviors, I oftentimes found myself without childcare. So I opened up my own daycare and took all the children that were kicked out. This led to working as a special ed para in the school district working with a range of behaviors and disorders. Then I went to Gerard school where I was a para and quickly went into Behavior counselor dealing with deescallation of behaviors and positive behavior modification. I started school in August 2016 to work on my Bachlors in Human services. This led to an internship at IMS where I saw the teamwork of the staff and applied. I like my job because I like the "investigative" portion of it. I have to look at my client and their situation and find out the "solution" to their barriers. I love working with the clients and helping them to discover new paths in life. I will graduate next spring with my AA and AS in Human Services and will start in the fall of 2018 with St Scholostica for my next step in my degree.
