Interest in developmental disabilities When I was growing up, our neighbors had to make the difficult decision to place their daughter, who was my friend, at the Cambridge Regional Treatment Center because there were not supports for her and her family. That started my passion to make a difference in supporting people and their families.
Experience in developmental disabilities I began my career as a special education teacher for the first public school classroom in a 9 district special education cooperative for students with significant disabilities, ages 4 – 21, and provided early intervention with infants and toddlers. I left teaching as the DD waiver first started in Minnesota to develop community services to support families, and assist people in regional treatment centers move with community services. I have extensive county and state experience with home and community based services for people with developmental disabilities, and have received recognition as an innovator. I am currently the Director for Disability Services at the Department of Human Services.
