I found Wonderland on Volunteer Match in 2013 and started volunteering just doing basic office tasks. Since that first day, I have fallen more and more in love with the work and the people at Wonderland. To see a group of highly talented individuals come together to support all of these children is truly inspiring. I’m excited to put my knowledge and skills to work as a board member!
Advisory Board & Community Council
As a child neurologist, I have worked with children with special needs for over 35 years. It is immensely gratifying to see and to be part of the wonderful work that Wonderland is doing providing services to children and their families. But one of the best parts of this work is that I get to meet and learn from other board members and Wonderland staff, amazing and talented people dedicated to helping children with special needs. I believe that Wonderland is truly remarkable and the best organization of its kind.
I am passionate about the need to widely expand public awareness regarding the prevalence of FASD, and about the potential for using state of the art knowledge to help the millions of children, adults, their families, and communities affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs. I hope to begin to achieve this by serving on the board of Fascets.org (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Consulting Education and Training Services), and now on Wonderland’s Community Council.
