Meet Mary.

Mary is a Team Lead in our Residential Program dedicated to helping the people she supports live fulfilling lives.

What’s your name?  

Mary Liller.

Why did you become a DSP?

I had the opportunity to volunteer my services for about 13 years in a social setting, helping with individuals with disabilities. When I saw InVision's advertisement asking for someone with ASL (American Sign Language) skills, I decided it was a good time to go full time in helping support an individual with specific needs.  

How many years have you worked with InVision?  

Over 8 years.

What do you like most about working with InVision?  

It’s a good size company that offers room to grow if one so desires. If you have a question, there seems to always be someone there to help you find the answer.

What’s your favorite part about being a DSP?  

The satisfaction of seeing progress made in the individual I support on a regular basis. The feeling that all my efforts have accomplished something worthwhile.

What do you feel is the biggest challenge you’ve overcome as a DSP?

Working long hours in a block is not always easy.  

How did you do it?

Ground and prepare before starting my block. Get plenty of rest during my days off and each morning before I start my day, I mentally prepare myself for what may be a challenge.  

What do you wish more people understood about your role as a DSP?  

I'm serious about my work. It's more than just a job. I deeply care about the health, life dreams, and overall well-being of the individual(s) I support.  

When you’re not working, what do you usually do?  

I rest, spend time with family when possible, take care of medical appointments, and relax with a hobby or two.  

What’s the best advice you’re received?  

Best for a crisis... "Take things one day at a time".  

What might someone be surprised to learn about you?  

I learned to play the piano at an early age. It is one of my favorite relaxing things to do.
