Veronica P. Thompson has a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Juvenile Corrections and is currently the Director of CAP/IDD/MR Behavioral Health Innovative Services/Mental Health Qualified Professional at Companion Home Care.
A strong advocate for the I/DD population, their families and stakeholders, she involves her clients in all Plans of Care to get access to the best sources of Innovative Waiver Services available for the most beneficial outcomes of a better quality of life.
Her professional interests focus on Tailored Plans designed for individuals with significant behavioral health needs and intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD), and other special populations (TBI & Autistic).
In addition, she has served as Qualified Professional for Intensive In-Home Services with the youth population ages 5-18 years old at Stevens Outreach Services in Lumberton NC for 2 years.
This position was very rewarding yet challenging as the Qualified Professional is responsible for facilitating relationships and serving as a link between the company, parents/guardians, local agencies, and the community.
