Her background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology/Music Education from the Philippines in 1996 and a Human Services Diploma from Columbia College in Calgary, Alberta in 2019. Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Professional Arts in Human Services at Athabasca University, Neome is passionate about imparting social skills, music, and arts to individuals with special needs.

What Parents Say

Arete Services Inc. has been a game-changer for Michael. He used to be so withdrawn, but since joining the program, he’s come out of his shell! He loves the music classes and recently even participated in a community garden project. Seeing him so happy and engaged brings me so much joy. Thank you, Arete, for giving him the opportunity to thrive!

Sarah Jones

We were hesitant about daycare programs at first, but Arete is different. Their focus on adventure and skill development really appealed to us. Emily is now more confident in the kitchen, thanks to their cooking classes, and she recently surprised us by planning a group hike with her new friends! It’s amazing to see her independence blossom.

David Miller

Alex has always been social, but his social skills needed some refinement. Arete’s program has been instrumental in helping him learn appropriate communication and interaction. He looks forward to going every day, and the staff is always so patient and supportive. We’re so grateful for the positive impact Arete has had on Alex’s life.
