An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Lead Direct Support Professional



Hello, I’m Gabby-

A little about me. I love all the opportunities being a DSP has presented me. As someone who finds fulfillment in assisting others, this career has led me to push to be a greater part of a wonderful community. Being our company outings manager is just an extra perk of that.

I have worked with younger individuals in various roles for many years. I have spent the last few years teaching living skills, mentoring and advocating for individuals who experience I/DD challenges. I have also supported and cared for individuals who are more elderly. Some of my volunteer work includes YMCA, setting up lines to create care packages for separate community groups (i.e. troops, homeless, African village youth, community outreach), coaching and more…. I am up for ideas on what’s next!

I have a wide variety of interests, I am always trying to expand. I love most things outdoors and always look for an excuse to be outside, especially if it’s near water. I love going to games and shows. Music of all kinds, of course followed up with wrongfully confident singing and dancing. I have an educational background in nutrition and cooking. So I enjoy getting in the kitchen and seeing what we can come up with. You can also find me cuddling up with one of my pets for a good book or movie.

I’m super excited to see what other adventures my time at Arise Mentors will bring me. Let me know what your ideas are for a fun outing!
