I am passionate about working with the special needs community. In 2013, while serving in AmeriCorps, I started a part-time respite position working with a teenager with Autism on weekends and evenings. While Megan’s Place did not yet exist when I started working with him, he is now served through us and I have the privilege of working with him to this day. After my term of service with AmeriCorps, I decided I wanted to work in the special needs field full time. I became a Resource Coordinator for Children’s Medicaid Waivers at the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center (DDRC) and am now working with Children and Adult Waivers. My time at Megan’s Place allows me to continue to be involved in direct care with the remarkable children and families we serve across the Metro Area!
