The MENTOR Network

DSP of the Week

At The MENTOR Network, we believe that our Direct Support Professionals—who help carry out The Network’s mission every day—should be valued, supported and recognized for a job well done. That’s why we’re honoring our direct support workforce and the tremendous difference they make each day in the lives of thousands of individuals we serve.

Each week, we’re recognizing one of our remarkable DSPs. Please take a moment to meet these talented individuals and remember to thank them for their commitment to the individuals we serve.

“I enjoy helping the people we serve and learning from them. I also enjoy helping other staff. Out in the community, we like to go to parks, the mall and out for drives.”

Brittni Ekholm

Direct Support Professional
NeuroRestorative, New Hampshire

“I enjoy being able to work one on one with such amazing people every day. They have helped me to grow as a human being, and have helped me in so many more ways than I think I have helped them! I love seeing each of them grow and the pride they have in themselves with each accomplishment. I love taking them on their personal outings, and being able to spend some true one-on-one time with each of them. It is so fun to bring them out and to do things they love doing.”

Krystal Cole

Direct Support Professional
Cole Vocational Services, CA

“Working as a direct support professional has been the most rewarding experience. I’m able to make a positive impact every day and give myself to others. When we’re out in the community we especially enjoy going to the library. There are books with anything they are interested in, magazines and movies to check out or to enjoy while there.”
