Growing up I had a neighbor down the street with Autism. He would jump around, flap his arms, laugh hysterically, and had a smile I will never forget. Right then was when my passion began in wanting to help those with Autism. Now, 10 plus years later, I have worked in early intervention, as direct care staff with adults, in schools with middle school age, as a TSS and now am a BSC/MT. I am passionate about helping those with Autism gain access to services they need, be treated with respect and dignity, and will advocate with them so they can gain access to live their best quality life!!!
