My focus is to utilize my many years of experience in employment service and person centered planning to support people in achieving their goals and dreams for living a full life.
As a planning facilitator, I will work to bring together your planning team which may include, family, friends, community members, school, employment agency staff, as well as state and county partners to showcase your individual skills and talents to build steps to achievable personal goals.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading good books, gold panning, and Siamese cats.
All people, regardless of abilities, have a right to a good quality of life and to be included in their communities. There is always a way to help a person experience their dreams. I have spent most of my career passionately and creatively supporting people with disabilities to live, work and play in their own communities, working with families and support staff to achieve their dreams. I started out as a Special Education teacher and am also a Certified Professional Coach. I am reasonably fluent in using Signed English as well.
