An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Scarlet

Direct Support Professional

Scarlet

Hello! My name is Scarlet. I decided to become a Direct Support Professional, because I just really love people. I strive to make every aspect of my life a place where everyone can feel happy, peaceful and knows it is a safe place for them to be. By supporting individuals as a DSP, I can do this both as a career and in my personal life. I’m an empathetic and loving person and assisting others to grow and succeed helps me find fulfillment in my own life. The opportunity to aid individuals in discovering new interests, learning new things and most of all, continuing in fostering their own independence, helps me to be a better person.  I have an incredible drive to improve daily, and to have a positive impact on the lives of everyone I work with. I’m excited to learn and share new experiences with individuals I will work with, as they discover new things.

I was born and raised in Oregon, but I have lots of family all over the US. I love the scenery and weather here, as fickle as it is, and I love the variety of people, food, and fun things to do. I enjoy the outdoors and taking in the beauty of nature, as much as I love watching a good film or playing video games. I’m naturally curious and like to take things apart and discover how they work. I once dismantled my Xbox when it started to sound like an F-15 flying overhead. I enjoy crafts such as jewelry making, and I’ve recently discovered that I really enjoy cooking food from different cultures. I also enjoy learning about the brain and how it functions and have always had a passion for true crime documentaries and forensic science.

I played the flute for 10 years when I was younger and loved being a part of my school’s theatre and choir programs. In my spare time I love listening to music and spending time with friends.  With that said, my life-long passion for reading and literature means that I’m equally happy curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.

All in all, I have a wide variety of interests and I’m excited for the opportunity to experience and explore new activities and places with my clients. I look forward to meeting and mentoring with you soon!
