I have been involved in the field of developmental disabilities for over 35 years. My educational background is in elementary and special education. Over the years I have worked with children, families, adults, teachers, providers, and other professionals. I am passionate about this work. I strive to help families envision positive futures for their family member. I also continue to actively advocate and work for systems change in our schools and DD programs in our state.
I have learned so much over the years. My beliefs, values, and efforts have been shaped by our son who experiences disability. He has given me a greater focus on “what really matters”. My work reflects what I have learned from my son, others with disabilities, families, and professionals I respect in this field. I believe everyone should have the opportunity and support to be in “hot pursuit” of a great life. There are so many possibilities! A quote that guides me is by Emily Dickinson, “I dwell in possibility.”
