“My goal is to amplify the voices of many- the child just learning to speak, the parent wanting to support their child, the teacher working on inclusion. I want to make sure that every day a child learns a new skill, every day a family has a positive experience and every day a therapist or teacher goes home knowing that they have made a difference in the life of a child.”
