Best Buddies is an organization I'm proud to promote. As the mother of five and a Peoria Public School District Speech Language Pathologist, the organization matches both my maternal and professional desires to advocate.
Through Best Buddies, thousands of people with disabilities have successfully moved from segregation and desolation to a new acceptance in their family and community. In turn, Best Buddies has created a new spirit of public service for thousands of middle school, high school and college volunteers that will last a lifetime.
As an entrepreneur with Muscular Dystrophy, I understand the challenges that having a disability adds to not only accomplishing goals but also living a "normal" life.
The IDD Community is the most isolated in our community and I take great passion in helping to break down those walls and I am honored to have your support in championing for inclusion.
