“I enjoy helping to improve people’s lives by giving them information for a new direction, reviewing IEPs, helping families find an advocate, or anything else that they need. It’s wonderful to see some of the people whom you’ve helped and who are positively affected by COSAC. I couldn’t ask to work at a better place!”
