Name the moment that inspired you to take your career path.
One important moment that inspired me to pursue a career in working with individuals who have disabilities would be when I successfully taught a four year old child who has Autism how to swim on their own. This was one of the most challenging tasks I had ever taken on and it was so rewarding seeing how the child progressed each lesson.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
My greatest accomplishment would be graduating Summa Cum Laude from The University of Tennessee. I worked very diligently during my undergraduate education and although many times it was never easy, I persevered and graduated with honors.
What do you love most about working at Eyas Landing?
Although I am new, I really enjoy the collaboration I have seen while working at Eyas Landing. Seeing providers from various disciplines come together to better serve a child is very special and it is amazing to see that each day.
How has the supervision at Eyas Landing supported your professional growth?
The supervision at Eyas Landing has shown me many potential career paths working with this population and fostered endless knowledge in this field.
Is there anything else you’d like to add about yourself?
I am very excited to work for this organization and continue to grow in my education of working with this population!
