An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Direct Support Professional


Hi there!  My name is Carrie.

I have always been interested in people more than anything else.  I think each individual is so beautiful and unique and special. Because of this, I got my bachelors degree in psychology.  I enjoy being a cheerleader for people as they work toward their goals.  I have worked in clinical research for 18 years.  At the beginning, I worked with people who were experiencing depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder.  Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. I also finished acupuncture school and worked in the clinic.

I enjoy being silly and joking and having fun.  I enjoy being creative and I really like being outside.  I enjoy taking walks or having picnics outside.  I have a very sweet dog and I take her for long walks each day.  Her name is Coco.  I enjoy being creative with arts and crafts. I like working with clay or making jewelry, painting, making collages and anything else crafty.

I am available Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  Monday afternoons might work as well.
