Q: Where did you grow up, and what brought you to the Chicago area?

Q: What does celebrating neurodiversity mean to you?

A: To me, celebrating neurodiversity means celebrating the uniqueness of each individual and welcoming the opportunity to help each client reach their full potential. Whether neurodivergent or neurotypical, we all have different ways of thinking and being in the world, and it’s extremely important to me that we honor that!
