As a disability advocate and behavior therapist, I am constantly reminded of the societal barriers and public perception of individuals with disabilities. From my work and personal experience, I am passionate about cultivating a space for individuals with disabilities to grow, learn, socialize, and work. I am inspired by IN! 's work to create a space of inclusion for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
I joined the Young Professionals Board because I want to be a part of the next generation of inclusion in higher education in Colorado. I believe that disability should not be a barrier to attending college, and attending college is an excellent opportunity to learn and gain knowledge and job-readiness skills. I am so excited to serve on this board!
