FAVORITE OR MOST REWARDING PART OF BEING A DSP: The most rewarding part for me is knowing that I have made a difference in someone else’s life. When you can walk into work and receive smiles and hugs from the ones you care for, it starts your day in the most positive way. Also rewarding is making changes in the way that things are done and knowing that it has made someone else’s job a little more enjoyable.
