I have worked professionally since 1997 with individuals with ASD and their families. Currently, I am the Program Manager of In-Home Services at Alternative Community Training (ACT) in Columbia. Before working at ACT, I kept busy as a Social Service Caseworker in Aspen, Colorado and prior to that, I served as the Coordinator for Transitional and Residential Services at Judevine Center in St. Louis.
I am a member of the Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network National Family Advisory Committee, currently I serve as chairperson for the parent sub-committee for the Columbia Transition Team (CTT) affiliated with Columbia Public Schools, and I co-chair the Patient and Family Advisory Committee at the Thompson Center for Autism. I am also actively involved as a volunteer for Special Olympics and coach a mid-Missouri unified basketball team with my husband Scott.
