DIRECTLINE Podcast: V2, E1: Needed, Wanted, Loved

S2 EP1 | the DirectLine

January 4, 2024

On the first episode of 2024, host David Roustio speaks with Amanda Hooper, a Program Specialist with The Alpha Group, an I/DD service provider in Ohio’s Delaware County. Amanda is married, has children, and manages 4 pet dogs – so she knows “feisty” when she sees it (especially that chihuahua, Roscoe!), and loves seeing it in the individuals she helps support. She tells David about the places they go, the activities they enjoy – and why she has to wear special shoes every Wednesday.
