What I love about my job...

“I love that my days are never the same and that I am always learning something new about assistive technology.  Assistive Technology (AT) can be a variety of tools that help people with disabilities be more independent in their everyday lives.  Each day, I have the opportunity to work with a great group of professionals to provide a wide variety of services.  I help to organize and provide training opportunities for educators throughout Colorado; I work in our clinic providing Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) evaluations and treatment and I participate in a variety of research projects.”
