Q: What is your connection to our mission?
A: I have worked in the field of autism for 15 years in a variety of settings from clinic based to the public school system. I see how autism touches every facet of a family’s life. As a Care Sidekick and a busy parent myself, I am grateful to help families navigate the many components after receiving a diagnosis and hope to help lighten their load in any way I can. I have been fortunate to connect with many families here at As You Are and hope to help many more.
