Direct Support Specialist
Aleia is a recent graduate and has a background in residential care. She worked with adolescent girls with behavioral and psychological diagnosis in a dorm that focused on clients with developmental and intellectual disabilities. These clients also had histories of complex trauma and had been removed from their homes. Aleia greatly enjoyed the challenge of helping these girls grow towards their potentials and overcome challenges. It makes all the work and effort worthwhile when our clients see an improvement in their quality of life and ability to interact with others. Being apart of helping clients reach their goals is a joy.
In her free time, Aleia enjoys spending time with her nephew, hiking, learning new things, reading the Bible, and sharing what she learns.
Aleia has earned her BA in Psychology from the University of Louisville.
