I have been the Executive Director for THRIVE Center for 14 years and am a proud parent of an 18 years old son who is on the spectrum. I have proudly served on the Colorado Special Education Advisory Committee and served as a co-chair on the Colorado Inter-Agency Coordinating Council and as a co-chair for JFK Partners Advisory Council. I also currently serve on the advisory board for Parent to Parent of Colorado. As a parent of a child who receives special education services I understand the victories and challenges that comes with this role. It brings me joy to work for an organization like THRIVE Center that helps family. I feel truly blessed for the opportunity. In my free time I like to read, attend concerts and travel.
