Fostering an environment of belonging is weaved into my DNA. I have two sisters, Leslie (older) is my protector and guide, Beth (younger) has Down Syndrome and is my motivator and educator. I am beyond fortunate, my parents raised us all to be individuals with the strength and resilience to live and model belonging. My role as mom to three very unique children continues to widen my perspective and experience, daily. There is value and a future for every single human on this earth, no matter their path to where they are now or desire to be. Joining the journeys of others as a support, a resource, a confidant, a mediator, a teacher, a guide, and a friend is the greatest gift I can give back to society.
Through the years I have experienced the resistance to growth and the ignorance of misunderstanding and strive daily to break down barriers. My diverse education and experience allows me to provide support that is flexible and progressive. I actively work to spread knowledge to others through trainings, conferences, course development and through the Brainery’s programs. Collaboration is key in my mission to learn and spread knowledge, I wouldn’t be on this path without every client, family, educator or service provider that I have had the pleasure of knowing.
