I have worked in the field of case management including delivery of direct services to individuals since 1987. I started out at a community mental health center, then worked at the Department of Human Services in child protection serving this at risk population. I was an administrator in this agency. I worked at a community center board in Colorado Springs for 9 years providing services to the IDD population working with children, adolescents and adults. I enjoy serving and helping people of all ages and abilities reach their goals in life.
