Day Habilitation Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 25, 2015
At FEGS there really is no typical day; anything can happen at a moments notice. From grand achievements to emergency protocols, I've learned that working with the developmentally disabled is both rewarding and exhausting. Thankfully, with amazing co-workers and superb managing skills I'm ready for anything.

Supportive co-workers; excellent supervision
Mental Health Counselor, Case Manager (Current Employee), Syosset, New YorkFebruary 3, 2015
For the past nine months I have worked as a Mental Health Counselor at FEGS Health & Human Services. I have been the Case Manager of Project Maze, a program that was implemented to provide counseling and social services to individuals and families who were coping with economic crisis. I have conducted initial assessments as well as counseled individuals. I have provided financial assessments and applications for our emergency cash assistance program. I have also provided information and referrals to clients seeking additional help and have worked with the Department of Social Services to help clients navigate the system and obtain the benefits needed. Most difficult part of the job is working with the population that this job required. Most clients were homeless or near homeless, which made it difficult to keep in contact with them. Clients also were not always respondent and did not follow through with appointments/sessions. Most enjoyable part of the job was the work environment and my co-workers. The people with whom I worked with were very supportive and encouraging. My supervisor is excellent at what she does and has taught me a lot. Although the population of clients were difficult, when a client was able to make a break through or was able to make positive progression in their life, that was enjoyable for me to help foster and be apart of.

Compassionate, caring organization supporting individuals with developmental disabilities
AVP/Director Long Island Residential Services (Current Employee), Long IslandJanuary 17, 2015
Even after 24 years administering services to children and adults with developmental disabilities, I have learned even more in my almost four years at FEGS. I have helped develop policies and procedures that have directly enhanced the lives of the individuals we support in the areas of teaching, behavior management and healthcare. The FEGS LI workforce has grown and the leadership supporting these sites are now well educated in OPWDD regulations under my supervision. I am proud of the quality program I created at FEGS and look forward to bringing my unique skill set to another provider.

Unit Clerk (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 16, 2014
Important clerical duties. For all jobs - be neutral with most everyone; don't try to befriend anyone at first. Sad to say-trust no one. Watch and protect your job; depend on no one and anything that pertains to you, check to make sure that it has been taken care of. Don't rely on anyone to do things for you. I like diversified duties.
