I work to improve and reform special education through parent training, advocacy, and policy. Currently, I am focused on developing a fully included school for all ages of life. My youngest daughter was born with Down syndrome and the state of her education and others I talk with, fuels me two-fold everyday. I think completely outside of the box and take a meaningful, purposeful, life-long approach to education. Thinking, my family, logic, and ancient civilizations are some of my pastimes.
