IL Skills Advocate
Nick is a disability advocate for SAIL. A lifelong resident of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan has offered a great outdoor playground to grow up in. The Marquette area has been like a second home to Nick which brought him to college there. He graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2018 with a degree in English/Writing. Nick is excited to be able to work with and support those that need help in the community around him. In his free time Nick likes to hike around the woods, hunt, swim, cross country ski, read and spend time with family and friends. He is happy and proud to work and play in the beloved Upper Peninsula.
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."
