Dear Kitsap County Families and Community Members,
It is a privilege that I will be working with you, as your new Kitsap County Parent Coalition Coordinator. I have an incredible desire for helping and teaching others; especially children, as well as being a voice for those who may not know how to express their respective needs, or know where to begin to find relevant resources which would be helpful within our community.
I also bring with me to this position, a rich and diverse professional background. Over the past ten years, I have served the Kitsap County community in various roles including: Job Coach, Direct Support Professional for individuals of different abilities, Childcare Provider, Volunteer, Networker, and Event Planner Coordinator.
I have a complex understanding of both the rewards and challenges of parenting a child who has physical limitations, and have discovered ways to be the best advocate, despite barriers and resistance.
Motivated by my intention to be a support and beacon of encouragement to others, I participate in public outreach events, conferences, and educational opportunities that allow me to gain knowledge and resources, and then in turn, pass this information along to other parents and individuals, in hopes of streamlining the process for them.
I am a Washington state native, and enjoy time spent with my husband, children, family and friends. My great enthusiasm for life keeps me engaged in the community and eager to meet new people and hear about their unique journey through life.
I am excited to work with you, and look forward to the opportunities to be of assistance.
Kitsap County Parent Coalition Coordinator
