Miya Winfield – Louisiana Direct Support Professional of the Year

Miya is a dedicated and passionate direct support professional (DSP) with ResCare Residential Services in Mandeville, Louisiana.

She’s known for her selflessness and for being an inspiration to others. Miya ensures clients are treated with the kindness and love they deserve. She assists our clients whenever they are in need; while still allowing them to grow and achieve things on their own.

In fact, most clients refer to Miya as “family” because of the unconditional support and respect she provides to each of them. Without her constant positivity and encouraging words, one of her clients might not have gained the confidence to move into his own apartment. Thanks to Miya, the client believed in himself, as she did, and now lives on his own. Now, he makes weekly calls to Miya to update her on his new life.
