I’ve been in the health sector for about 34 years now. I was a registered nurse back home in Africa and I’ve been assisting people with disabilities since 1983. When I came to America my first thought was to be trained as a direct support professional. I love what I do supporting those that are in need. It’s an important section of society. People who are successful in this kind of work really have compassion and they can’t do it for the money, they have to want to make a difference.
