Autism Spectrum, Transition from high school to college

Brief biography

I joined the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse in September 2014. Prior to this position I spent 3.5 years as a Disability Access Consultant at Arizona State University and 8.5 years as a high school special education/physical education/student leadership teacher. In my previous position at ASU, I had the opportunity to lead a number of projects including the development of a high school transition fair for students with disabilities and developing and teaching a course for students on the Autism Spectrum.

I received my Masters of Education in Special Education from Seattle University in 2006. During my time as an undergraduate student at Central Washington University, I spent four years as a varsity cheerleader and graduated in 2001 with my B.S. in Physical Education with a minor in Choral Music Education.

I enjoy hiking, reading, singing a cappella music, playing piano and keyboard, coaching cheerleading, and spending time with my wife and four children.
