She says, “In more than 26 years of living in Saratoga Springs, I have grown to respect Saratoga Bridges for all the contributions and various services in the local community for individuals with developmental disabilities. I am especially impressed with the outcome being produced daily by their staff members. I was interested in joining their Board as I have seen first-hand a family member utilizing their services and what a positive influence the organization has had on her life and well-being. As an educator, I have worked as a Special Education teacher assisting special needs students in various capacities. I do feel I have an understanding and have much empathy towards the disabled population. It is an honor to be a Board Member. Further, my vision for the organization is to add more services for people with developmental disabilities and their families. I am excited about the future and being able to assist in fundraising efforts that raise crucial funds and awareness to promote the agency!”
