An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Direct Support Professional


Hello all, my name is Kirk. I’m a positive friendly person and if I am not camping in the shade from the summer sun you can find me fishing in the Clackamas river. I’m a 36-year-old Pacific Northwest native that thrives in the great outdoors. Being an outdoorsman has taught me many things in life but most importantly how to listen and when to take things slow.

I have lived in the SW Portland area most of my life. I have assisted individuals since 2015. I first started working with seniors, but now help individuals experiencing I/DD challenges.  Among many things I have done with the I/DD community, I have been a bowling coach for the special Olympics for several years. If I’m not outside enjoying the great Portland Metro area, you can find me indoors doing fun things like shooting pool and of course, bowling. I have been with ARISE Mentors since 2022 and love the great experiences and challenges it brings. I look forward to sitting down to meet with you and hopefully working with you.
