IL Skills Development
I was born and raised in Marquette, and enjoy all the outdoor activities the U.P. has to offer. My previous work background includes Massage Therapy, Marketing/Management and Event Planning. I enjoy working with people of all abilities, and look forward to working with individuals living with a disability to assist them with increasing their independent living skills!
In my free time you can find me participating in outdoor activities including mountain biking, alpine and cross country skiing, camping, hiking and stand up paddle boarding.
What Our Team Has To Say.
"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."
"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."
"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."
