Assistant Director
Brief info

I serve as the Assistant Director at SAIL, overseeing day-to-day operations, program development and supervision of the IL Skills and Peer Support pillars of service. After spending more than 15 years working in the field of disability services, I joined SAIL in 2016 on a part-time basis. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Lake Superior State University.

After spending 13 years in Wisconsin working in education, we moved to the Upper Peninsula to be able to fully enjoy our love of winter sports.




A Few Kind Words

"Disability Network has allowed me to share ways to deal with social issues, given me new ideas about technology and other accommodations, helped me to share and release stress, and increased my self esteem."

Geri Taeckens

"As an intern at SAIL, I have been able to direct many people toward programs or organizations that may help people live more independently. Every time a goal is accomplished, the feeling of success is totally noticeable. Even with one client at a time, the community is noticing that this organization cares about our clients and the communities in which they serve."

Jennifer Webber

"I want to improve acceptance, community integration and employment opportunities for people in my community who have disabilities. They are individuals with strengths and challenges just like everyone else."
