Having worked for over thirty years supporting individuals with disabilities in a wide variety of community settings, it is my pleasure to be part of the DACS faculty. My goal as an instructor is to support our students, so upon graduation they have the knowledge and skills to support individuals with disabilities to pursue  self-determined lives within an inclusive community.
