I have spent my professional life working with people with special needs. My career started with the TN Department of Human Services. I then worked for non-profit agencies in Nashville, Knoxville, and Maryville,TN, that serve adults with disabilities. As a social worker and Director of an agency, I helped individuals develop necessary job skills, independent living skills, and social skills needed to be productive members of society.

When given the opportunity to develop a job training program for high school students with special needs, I chose to accept the opportunity and to continue my education while developing the program. The program continues to be successful today. I have since used my interests and education to serve high school students with special needs in the academic setting. I am fortunate that I have had and continue to have a career that has been extremely diverse, rewarding, challenging, and fulfilling.
