More Information
I come from a family that includes a variety of medical, neurological, and physical disabilities. During a time when family members with disabilities were generally kept away from the public, I was blessed as a child to be raised in a world where differences were embraced and celebrated. I grew up believing we were all differently-abled and our potential was tied more to our dreams and belief in ourselves than to perceived limitations and labels.

Despite a long and highly successful corporate career, it wasn’t until I started volunteering as an Educational Surrogate Parent for students in the foster care system, that I experienced a true sense of reward. Since that time I have provided assistance to others with regards to their civil rights and special education challenges. These families have included other advocates, teachers, related service providers in the special education field, activists in disability rights, officers of SEPACs, other members of the organizations in which I volunteer as well as families unaffiliated with any organization or the profession of special education.

Mathama Gandi said “Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” I believe that my destiny is to enable others to access their rights and to deliver change that brings about true equality of opportunity and benefit for those with disabilities regardless of income, religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other societal defining attribute.
