MA, CAS, - CFO & Educational Consultant
Growing up with Dyslexia and a Learning Disability has provided me the ability to understand what it’s like for children and adults with Disabilities. I became a special education teacher after receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Special education. I then transitioned into starting my own company that provided early childhood care for children with disabilities as well as those in the foster care system. Later I joined a non-profit that provided support to parents of children with disabilities through educational Advocacy. Additionally, I began working with adults with disabilities by supporting them to achieve self-determination through self-advocacy. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate degree in the area of Educational Leadership with the emphasis in Andragogy. I received my Master’s degree in Autism K-12, and received International Certification as an Autism specialist in January 2014. Most importantly I am a wife and mother of two wonderful boys, one of which has a diagnosis of Tourette’s syndrome. My passion is to support parents, teachers, administrators, and community stake holders in working together to ensure a positive collaboration.
