"I enjoy helping, assisting and providing people with services that can help them reach their goals." -Heidi Fall, Program Director
From the time Heidi started at Amego in 2006, she has felt that the leadership has been nothing but helpful and supportive. Heidi has had many opportunities to improve her knowledge and develop new skills. She began working as a shift supervisor, and through training and skill development, Heidi was promoted to Program Director in 2014. Heidi enjoys working in a pleasant multicultural environment. Most importantly, Amego has given her the opportunity to pursue her educational dreams, giving her a stronger background for her career at Amego. The scholarship Amego has given her has opened a door, giving the prospect of a brighter future.
"The Amego scholarship is playing a key role in shaping me into a successful person in the future."
Heidi is very grateful for the opportunity Amego has given her in pursuing her education, and is thankful to the management at Amego who believed in her and gave her this opportunity.
"What I like best about Amego is the teamwork, and how I enjoy every day of my job." -Adam Brodeur, Education Director
Adam started as an Assistant Teacher but quickly advanced to a Case Manager.
"I came to Amego because I wanted to work in a classroom, helping students with autism."
As a Case Manager, he decided to further his education and go back to school for his Masters in Special Education with a concentration in severe and profound disabilities at Bridgewater State College. Amego supported his decision and provided the financial backing he needed. Last year Adam became an Education Director for the school. He will complete his Master’s Program in May of 2019.
Adam has recently started speaking to students in the Introduction to Special Education class at Bridgewater State College, where he takes classes for his own degree. He has helped foster a relationship with aspiring special education professionals, encouraging them to take the path in supporting students with severe and profound disabilities. This spring, students at Bridgewater State College will participate in internships with our school to see first-hand how rewarding it is to work for Amego. Adam credits Amego with helping him build his future.
"I love seeing the progress and growth of the children here at Amego's BEST Clinical Network." -Eileen Sweeney, Clinical Coordinator
When Eileen Sweeney turned 18 she started working for Amego. She began as an Assistant Teacher in our school program. When Eileen decided to go to college, she stayed on and worked in both the school day and residential programs. Eventually she transitioned to Amego's BEST Clinical Network to provide services to children in their homes. Eileen decided to continue her education and get her Master's in Severe Special Education and Applied Behavior Analysis. Amego supported her decision and paid for her education. Eileen is now a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and oversees the center at BEST Clinical Network. Eileen credits her success to the encouragement of the management staff at Amego, specifically our President and Chief Executive Officer, John Randall.
“He is a role model. He has made the organization grow and I am proud to be a part of it.”
"If I had to choose one thing I love best about working at Amego, I would say that Amego seeks to craft the best environments for everyone involved with the organization, whether they are the individuals served, their families, or our employees." -Dr. Paul Mahoney, Director of Clinical Services, Central MA Division
When Endicott College started its Ph.D. Program in 2014, Paul Mahoney was admitted to its first doctoral cohort and presented his dissertation on "Momentary Time Sampling" in Spring 2018. Paul Mahoney has been with Amego since 2012. Before joining Amego, Paul was considering going for his Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis, but was not able to pursue his degree.
When asked about the assistance Amego has given him, Paul stated, “Amego has supported me in two ways. First, they provided financial support that helped me to afford expensive graduate education. More importantly, though, from President and CEO John Randall down, Amego has provided me with genuine professional and moral support that certainly helped me complete the program. I don’t think I could have finished without the support of my supervisor Annie Barlow and my advisor Michael Dorsey.” He is an example of the commitment Amego has to its employees in furthering their education.
Paul currently serves as the Director of Clinical Services of Amego’s Central MA Division.
