About Us

Above and Beyond Caring started as an idea 15 years ago, after having the opportunity to work in this rewarding field with many wonderful people. Introduced to this field through a fortunate opportunity to work with people with autism after college, my love for this work developed instantly. I had many mentors throughout the years where I learned many valuable insights, and who generously spent time to show me how to love this work. Time spent with all the friends I worked with was inspiring and challenging, but the reward was great. How many jobs are out there where you can walk into a building and everyone is happy to see you? How often can you get to know a family and make a difference in their lives? This is what motivated me to start Above and Beyond Caring - to provide opportunities for integrity, compassion and respect - so that each person that I am privileged to work with has joy and love beyond measure.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!
