JOHN SILFIES

FOUNDER

My journey started by accepting a position as a Direct Support Professional in 2011. That decision propelled me into a career dedicated solely on making the lives of people with developmental disabilities the best they can be. My passion has been driven directly by the relationships that I built in that very first job in this field. I served the Director of Marketing for a large provider agency for years and then transitioned into the Public Relations Manager role at a Council of Governments, overseeing 10 County Boards of Developmental Disabilities. While in these roles, I saw the rapid decline of the amount of Direct Support Professionals coming into this field, and it broke my heart for the people that desperately need these services. I knew I had to do something about it. Through Silfies Media, I have the ability to use my skills, passion and years of experience to make a direct impact on people with Developmental Disabilities and the people that support them. I get to see incredible stories come alive right before my eyes every single day, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
