So, kinda thrilling – the first thing I’ve sent out to a publisher for several years and I won first prize 🙂 (which paid for great new shoes while holidaying in London). It is also my first publication in an academic journal, through Athabasca University’s MA-IS program. You can read the whole journal from this link, or you can read my creative non-fiction work here. Those who know me will recognise some re-occuring themes in my fascination with how Web 2.0 reflects our culture, parenting and personal narrative mythology as reflection.

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
