I have worked with disabled children and adults for the last 15 years through the medicaid waiver program. Helping not only those with special needs,but also their families is a true passion of mine. I started on my degree in 2003-2005 and was not able to finish due to my youngest daughter being very ill. I'm finally finishing what I started almost 13 years ago. I am hoping to use my degree to not only help families, but also to help advocate for disability rights.
