To say I am passionate about what I do at Creative Foundations is an understatement. In 2006 I graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Pittsburgh Pa, with a degree in Visual Communications. I was off to conquer the world of graphic design and Photography. I started working almost immediately for a small web design company in Pittsburgh.
In 2008 I moved to Mount Vernon Ohio to be closer to my family. I began working for Creative Foundations in the fall of 2008 as a Team member to earn a little extra money so I could head west to California and continue to pursue my career in Graphic Design. It was not long after I began working for Creative Foundations I realized what I was doing was so much more than I expected. I knew this job was going to change my life. Until that time I had been taking deliberate steps to gear my life towards becoming what I thought was all I wanted.
I have experienced a lot of different jobs in my life. Everything from working as a Manager at McDonalds, to being a Nurses aide, which payed my way through college. At one point in my life I was even that telemarketer everyone dreaded to get a call from, but this!… Working along side of Individuals who just so happen to have a Developmental Disability has been the most eye opening and rewarding job I have ever had. I have learned that while I've been gearing my life towards bettering myself by going to college and becoming an independent adult. There are people that are near my age or older who are still struggling for those basic rights that I had taken for granted in the pursuit of my dreams. Basic rights like deciding to move out on their own or even more basic, To get a job that will help them with much more than moving out on your own.
I have learned and continue learning everyday that we can help make some ones life better by helping them achieve their goals one person at a time and we can help someone follow their own dreams as I had the right to follow mine. Community Integration and equal rights for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities are my Creed. I speak out for those that cannot speak and I encourage those who can to speak out for themselves. #WEARECOMMUNITY!
