An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Direct Support Professional


Hello! My name is Eddie, and I’ve lived in Oregon my whole life. I’ve always enjoyed helping people in any way I can, and I believe everyone deserves support in achieving their goals. I value humor, positivity, equity, and authenticity. I’m a very patient and compassionate person, and I love getting to know people.

Some of my skills include budgeting, scheduling, and meal planning. I’m great at time management and I’m highly organized. I enjoy problem solving and helping people reach their full potential in the ways that work best for them. I’m very flexible and understanding.

I have a wide range of interests and hobbies. I love music, movies, and video games of all genres. I especially enjoy live music. I spend a lot of my time making ceramics, crochet, painting, and various other forms of art. I’m very passionate about creativity and self-expression. I also enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, roller skating, swimming, and camping. I love spending time on the Oregon coast, and it’s my dream to travel around the world.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to join ARISE Mentors, and I look forward to working within the community.
