How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
I began working with students who learn differently in a variety of classrooms: from special education classes at the primary level to other colleges – environmentally based and otherwise – earlier in my career. I have close family members with LD’s, and Beacon’s mission is particularly close to my heart as I desire for them to have the same acceptance and opportunities in life as any other member of society.

Reading for pleasure, aerial acrobatics, weight lifting, scary movies, spending time with my 3 elderly rescued cats, and doing anything near or on the water.
