"As a parent, you never truly get used to the stares, giggles, and comments about your child, but I have chosen to use it as an opportunity to educate and inspire."

"As a 17-year autism advocate, I help those with autism turn their challenges into victories," she continued, "Therapy, training, and community awareness help integrate these individuals so we can all start to understand the puzzle of autism. I believe everyone deserves the chance to reach their full potential!"
