"Health Services of Northern New York, Inc. has nurtured my career since 1993. I started here as a scheduler. I moved through several positions internally and learned that I wanted to become a PTA. They were very supportive of my decision to further my education and accommodated my school schedule so I could stay working at Health Services of Northern New York, Inc.. I later received my degree as a PTA and went on to get my two years of clinical experience before returning to Health Services of Northern New York, Inc.. I have been with the agency ever since. I love my job and I look forward to going to work every day. My clients are amazing and remind me of why I chose this field every day. I feel a tremendous amount of support and teamwork from my co-workers at the office and in the field. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives every day."

"Before working at Health Services of Northern New York, Inc., I worked in a group home setting for people with disabilities in Florida.

I really enjoy the one on one interaction with my clients and it is so gratifying knowing at the end of each day that I have made a difference for someone. The great thing about Health Services of Northern New York, Inc. is that they are very flexible and extremely team oriented. I know I have a great support system with the office, my supervisor, and other aides in my location."
