A story to share

I believe it is important for people to learn about high functioning autism from someone who understands it best.  I live with it daily.  Sharing my story is a lifetime passion and something I hope inspires others.  Not only do I hope to help navigate a path that others may think is closed, but I also want to show how much people with autism have to offer.  I feel comfortable speaking in front of small and large groups, as well as classrooms and auditoriums. I have shared the following topics before, but I’m open to exploring other topics as well.  Questions are encouraged and meet and greets before and following are always something I look forward to.  To learn more, use the contact form to share your next occasion.
