Bethany Toledo
Executive Director

Bethany’s career in the I/DD field began nearly 30 years ago. She spent her first decade as a Direct Support Professional and worked in a variety of settings, including a 32-bed intermediate care facility (ICF) and smaller group homes. She took a promotion to Program Coordinator at Muskingum Residentials, Inc., and there her major responsibilities included hiring and training staff, conducting assessments, and writing habilitative programs. In 2010, Bethany began to mentor for DSPaths, and went through the series with her mentees to understand how to best support them. After completing the program’s Certificate of Initial Proficiency (CIP), Bethany became a certified instructor for DSPaths and the program’s Mideast Regional Coordinator. Over the next few years, her passion for DSP advocacy grew, and she eventually transitioned her full-time hours to OADSP. Bethany has performed many roles with OADSP, including the Credentialing & Outreach Coordinator, co-editor of the E-FLASH newsletter, and Chief Operating Officer. In 2015, she succeeded Amy Gerowitz as OADSP’s Executive Director. Bethany’s accomplishments include her selection as the 2010 Maureen Corcoran Award winner; two published articles in NADSP’s newsletter; creating OADSP’s statewide grading system for DSPaths’ CIP and Certificate of Advanced Proficiency portfolios; establishing OADSP’s DSP and Frontline Supervisors Councils; and developing OADSP’s annual Summit. Additionally, Bethany has written and presented seminars at state and national conferences. Most recently, she became a Maxwell certified coach.
