Hello. My name is Jaimie Bragalone. I graduated from Clarion University of PA with both a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Special Education, with a focus on substance abuse. In addition, I attended Marywood University where I received a Home and School Visitor Certification. My career with Genesis House began with an internship at the agency in 2000. After completing the internship and my final semester in college, I began working as a full time counselor January of 2001. I had the opportunity to utilize skills in dealing with anger management as well as in working with adolescents. In 2005, I left the agency to become a stay-at-home mom. During my time out of the field, I held various customer service and management positions, which fostered my need for interpersonal relationships, helping to maintain the ability to connect with others. I returned to Genesis House, Inc. for the second time in July of 2015. I currently work part time and in addition to the previous skills used, I now offer opportunities for developing and utilizing faith and spirituality within one’s recovery.
