A Message From Our Founder
I began my journey serving individuals with mental and physical disabilities in 1986. You see, when I was a senior in high school, I had a friend with cognitive deficits whose popular sister would often ignore or abandoned her at school. The times I drove my friend home is when I knew that I would choose a career that assists individuals with special needs and challenges.
My passion to treat everyone with respect and dignity only grew stronger from there. Throughout the years I volunteered for Special Olympics, supervised group homes with autistic residents, fostered 23 children, and adopted five children who were disabled and considered at risk. I had direct, hands on training and a heart to give, teach and nurture those who others would turned away.
Decades of experience, education, and the need to do more, have brought me here… Founder and Executive Director of Care Warriors, Inc. My passion and compassion are stronger than ever as I work to empower one of our most vulnerable populations. I am committed to training other instructors to increase our reach to those in need of modified and special education and training.
Being a CEO for a non-profit is a labor of love, continuous commitment, outside of the box thinking, overcoming challenges, some days full of frowns, and others filled with laughter. Looking back on each day, I would not change a single minute.
Thank you for visiting our site and for being a part of the Care Warrior journey.
