My name is Alisha. I am our Specialized Program Director. I assist families that may want additional support in developing systems that works best for them and their family.
I began my career in the DD field right out of high school, where I discovered I had a strong passion for the field. I have enjoyed a variety of positions within the field; direct care staff in both family homes and in group homes; group home manager, behavior specialist, and assistant director of residential services. I have had the privilege of working with many individuals, some of whom I’ve been able to stay in close contact with. I value the relationships I develop with each person and enjoy being able to assist people in achieving their goals! I have lived near the Salem area my entire life. I am very close with my family and enjoy spending as much time as possible with them. My husband and I are newly-weds and are looking forward to our adventures together. We have a puppy named Odin and two cats named Loki and Mia. We enjoy taking Odin on hikes to the beach and long drives on country roads.
