Director of Operations
Joanne’s love of working with children and families began at an early age volunteering in a children’s physical developmental clinic at the local community college. From there, she built her education through bachelor’s and master’s level degrees but found more valuable experience working hands-on with children, individuals and families diagnosed with autism and other developmental disabilities. Connecting and building relationships with families drives Joanne’s passion for helping students and individuals build self-confidence and promote their own self-determination. Joanne currently holds accreditation as an Advanced Certified Autism Specialist (ACAS21878405) through The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards.
