“Once you choose HOPE, anything’s possible.”
Born and raised in Ethiopia. I earned my B.A. Degree in Administration & Social Science
from Addis Ababa University. I came to the United States in 2000. Living in United
States has provided me with opportunities to grow and develop, both personally and
Through much of my career, I have been directly involved with adults with disabilities.
My roles as Program Manager in Adult Day Program, as well as Direct Care staff as
a Support Specialist and Special Aide has been particularly rewarding. From these
experiences I have remained sensitive to participants’ unique capabilities. I provide
individualized support and collaborate with each participant’s Circle of Support.
Every participant is able to determine and achieve his or her personal goals.
Throughout my journey, I have developed skills, knowledge, and experiences with adults who have intellectual disabilities. My vision is to combine my knowledge and experience with my passion, expertise and heartfelt compassion.
