Specialties (e.g., working with autism, the elderly, employment for people with disabilities or youth in transition, mental health, experience with assisted technology)

My past experience includes job coaching for Elmbrook schools, where I took students in the individualized education program (IEP) to various job sites in the community so that they could learn valuable vocational skills to add to their resumes. Before I was a job coach, I worked in both classrooms and in a transition program, supporting students and helping them develop life skills such as shopping, cooking, cleaning and (most important) having fun in the community. I also supported five differently-abled young adults as they transitioned to independent living in their own apartments. I have worked with a variety of adults with different abilities to help them learn skills and live their best life.
