a little bit about me…

I’m a graduate student at the University of WI-Madison and an intern at the Department of Health Services (DHS) where I’m part of an Employment Initiatives team. I review employment policies and initiatives to increase integrated employment outcomes for people with disabilities. I have many passions in life and one of them is advocating for the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities. After I’m finished with school, I hope to work on policy issues in areas such as education and employment that will improve the quality of life for people with various physical challenges.
