With my firsthand experience caring for my special needs son and various family members, I possess an unparalleled perspective on family issues. My personal challenges have instilled in me a profound empathy for individuals seeking support, and I currently coach others on how to advocate for themselves and their loved ones effectively. It is crucial to be the voice for those struggling to make themselves heard. Failing to speak up can cause life to pass you and your child by, so it’s essential to be active and advocate for what you believe in.
