Independent Living Services Program Manager
How did you get involved with the Independent Living Movement?
I went to a protest outside Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco that ADAPT organized. It was my first time at a disability rights rally. I grew up with disabilities and had been active with other grassroots movements, but this was the first time I had attended a rally filled with disabled people focusing on disability rights. In 2007, I started working at The Center for Independent Living.
I enjoy cooking vegetarian and vegan food and like to read science fiction/speculative fiction. I also enjoy watching movies and look forward to hopefully going to a movie theater again some day.
