Good morning. My name is JaQuina and I'm an Activities Director here in Mississippi. I have been a CNA for six years and I have done a form of this type of work as a Recreational Assistant for the Navy base. I have gone through a series of courses offered here in the state. I went through the qualification course, but I am not as of yet certified.

Hi ya'll!

 

Im Mallory and have just recently been promoted to director from the assistant position.  I hope to complete my course next week and I can start to implement and organize many great things for my facility!  Also excited to bounce ideas and use suggestions from others in the same field!

Hello,

 

My name is Natonyia Nelson. I have been an activity assistant in Virginia for a year and 7 months. I am currently taking my MEPAP1. I am on to completing my final practicum. I will apply for my AAC and then will probably move on to taking my MEPAP II and apply for my ADC

Hi...Lyn from Cape Cod.  Activity Director for past five months (previous year, Engage Life Instructor- activity aide).  Like the work.  Love trying new things and getting feedback...then tweaking or making big changes as needed.

Hello Everyone!  I am Emily and I work at SNF in rural Kenyon, Minnesota.  We are a small 30 bed facility and have an attached assisted living that has an 8 unit memory care and 23 apartment/studio units.  I have been taking the MEPAP 1 class online with Activity Directors Network and only have a few weeks of it left to go.  Then of course it will be onto the MEPAP 2 class and certification before I am done with this journey. 

 

Is there any advice that you wish you would have known when you were just starting out?  Any great resources that you would recommend?

Hello everyone, My name is Diane. I have been apart of the MEPAP1-Ownpace. Finishing up with my final practicum packet and hoping to take the final soon. It has been fun but a lot of work on top of working full time.  Best of luck to you all! Looking forward to Part 2  :D

Hi Diane, I am in the same boat as you but it looks like you are a bit ahead of me since you posted last month. If you are still checking this, reply to my post and let me know how MEPAP2 is going for you. I'm going to take it as soon as I finish my final practicum and exam. Good luck to you!!!
