About me & my work:

I have worked with people with severe disabilities for more than twenty years. As an Occupational Therapist, I was often frustrated by the lack of appropriate housing and support and seeing young people admitted to nursing homes. In January 2006 I founded a not for profit called the Summer Foundation which focuses on the issue of young people in nursing homes. The vision of the Summer Foundation is that young people with disabilities and complex care needs will have inherent value as members of our society, with access to services and housing that support their health and wellbeing.
