When speaking to her she is excited about her work and the activities she engages with the consumers such as: karaoke, walks, dancing, and watching videos of their choosing. She respects the consumer's choices and recognizes that the home is their home and not for her use but for theirs. She knows and understands their behaviors and how to respond accordingly. She is a positive and motivational woman who is capable of mentoring these young women.
Fahiyma goes above and beyond for everyone around her. Before coming to The Arc Mercer, she had no experience in the behavioral field, but working in the Special Needs Day Program came naturally to her. She quickly took initiatives, formed bonds with the consumers, and has truly excelled in this role!
