I’m also the parent of three adult children, and my youngest son, Dylan, received inclusive special education services. As an educator, I understand the challenges teachers face in striving to meet all students' needs, and as a parent, understand the importance of parents advocating for their children. I’m available to provide advocacy services throughout Colorado. Please contact me and we’ll get started!
