Elyse – Program Staff
Elyse comes to AIM with over ten years of experience in the social services field. She began as a volunteer for Kid’s Ability where she first discovered her passion for supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. Elyse went on to complete her diploma in Recreation and Leisure Studies and her Bachelor of Arts in Therapeutic Recreation. She has enjoyed gaining one-on-one experience while working with Extend-A-Family as well as in group homes, long-term care facilities and day programs around the region. Elyse has lived in two l’Arche communities where she enjoyed fully immersing herself in the day-to-day of community inclusion. While working with the Canucks Autism Network she implemented recreation and skill building opportunities for individuals with Autism living in the lower-mainland of British Columbia. Elyse is very excited to join the AIM team and looks forward to sharing in meaningful experiences with the AIM participants. *Elyse is currently a staff at the AIM Kitchener program and is looking forward to AIM Cambridge opening this spring!
