Native beach babe, turned small town television journalist, turned teacher of the past, turned advocate of the future.
Along with the support of my amazing family, I credit the love of my life Trenton, and his accomplished military career for giving me the opportunity to have so many impactful careers and the experience to live in so many gorgeous corners of this great nation. But my most important career would be my current: domestic engineer to 3 amazing charges
And Troy, my chromosomally-enhanced son, for giving me the inspiration to advocate for what’s good and right in this one life we’re given: belonging, acceptance, and love.
My life has been an evolution to this exact juncture. I’ve had to adapt: my work, my geographic location, even my personality. Now I’m ready. I’m ready for the fight for this generation’s human rights struggle. Do people with intellectual disabilities deserve to be fully equitable members of our society? My answer is a resounding YES!
This blog is really about Troy, and anyone who’s fighting for equity of access.
Access to school, work, transportation, friends, family, and life. I’m just a conduit for this change. I’m so happy you’ve joined the debate, and I hope you can be part of the change. Please join me on this great journey. Let’s advocate together!
