I’m a Direct Support Professional because I love what I do. I’m the kind of person who believes that you give what you get. A DSP should always be a person who puts themselves in another person’s shoes. Especially as a mother I always said to myself I don’t know what God is going to bless me with and working with people where you don’t know what is going to happen you have to put a smile on your face and you have to put in 100% every day
It makes my day knowing that they look forward to seeing me and I’m giving them a positive energy. I kept working through COVID because the only constant for the people we support is us. It makes me want to work. They can’t go to work, they can’t see their friends, they can’t do their activities, and if I stayed away too that would be too much. The least I can do is still go in and be there for them.
