About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Culver City, CA, United States
Introduction My own personal experience with autism started when when my son, Jacob, was diagnosed at age 3. It was a journey and he recently graduated with a diploma from public high school. He has friends but imaging what he'll do next is a huge challenge. My current focus is helping him to find a job & enroll the local community college. I was employed for nearly a decade in the autism education field supporting individuals of all ages including preschoolers, teens and young adults. I'm using this experience to develop a program supporting young adults with autism with internship placement, social mentoring, and home organization & personalization. I also offer support to parents as they navigate the complex world of helping their child transition after high school.
