BROKER PROFILE

I received my Bachelors in Psychology, and minored in Social Work from SUNY Old Westbury ‐ Old Westbury in 2017. During my studies, I interned at Nassau County Department of Social Services & AHRC Nassau. While interning at AHRC Nassau, I learned about Self‐Direction services, and how a FI is operated . I quickly found an interest in providing supportive community living services to those who have a Self‐directed budget. So, I’ve attended meetings for individuals with Self direction, I was able to learn the core principles of advocating for the participants needs and wants whole staying in the limits of their budget. Before pursuing my Bachelors degree, I worked in residential group homes for individuals with ID/DD at Citizens Options Unlimited in Plainview, NY. I assisted individuals with daily living skills, taught social skills, implemented person‐centered goals. Through this experience, I became familiar with Individualized Service Plans
