Volunteer Support Staff

We support a region that is extensive and diverse, we count on the help of our volunteer staff, their help is invaluable, for the daily success of our activities.
 

Our volunteers provide support in clerical, logistics and community roles, this is the team that makes things happen.

Support From Within

Our staff of volunteers assure the smooth process of daily activities in the organization, people reach out to us daily seeking guidance and knowledge. In the presence of a disability, all aspects of life present challenges that sometimes seem unapproachable. Ours is a diverse region: families receiving an ASD diagnosis, military families arriving in the region, young adults who graduate from high school, children transitioning into middle school, IEP meetings, etc. There is something or someone seeking assistance, in need of support, all the time, for that, the Autism Society Tidewater Virginia counts on the kindness of volunteers who go the extra mile, for their community.

I am originally from Tucson Arizona and moved to VA in 2012. My  husband retired from the Air Force as a firefighter. I have two amazing boys, Gunner and Maverick. Gunner was diagnosed with ASD at 18 months old. I am currently a student at TNCC studying Social Sciences  to pursue my dream of helping families with loved ones with ASD navigate services and advocate for them. I love sharing my knowledge and
resources to help others.
