“My journey started just over 10 years ago and little did I know how extensive it would be! Peer support has been the most valuable connection I’ve had during this time of my life. The journey of special needs parenting is a little less lonely when you can connect with parents and caregivers who are treading the same amount of water, just to survive the daily obstacles.

My passion for peer support started early on as I began sharing our journey with others and realized it was very fulfilling to me to be able to relate and provide value to others’ journeys. This passion grew so much that I went back to school and obtained my Master’s in Social Work, and now even work in peer support professionally. I am happy to work with others on the special needs parenting journey because they are my favorite people of all time! They just get it.”
