My desire in life has always been to invest in people and make a positive difference in my world. I have been blessed with many opportunities through the years to do just that. Serving on staff at Life Bridges has provided that opportunity. No two days are the same and there is never a dull moment when you support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their staff. I am uniquely able to positively affect the daily lives of the people we support through relationships, and program/staff development. I am also able to positively affect the lives of staff through the same avenues. I am grateful for the opportunity to end my day knowing I have fulfilled my desire to invest in people!
