Advocacy Resource Associate
Angie owned and operated Angie’s Angels, a home health care agency. For several years, she thoroughly enjoyed working closely with people with disabilities. It was her only connection to disability until 1998, when she contracted pancreatitis during a pregnancy. She lapsed into a coma for 14 days.
When Angie woke she found she had a new baby daughter and had lost her vision. Over the next year, Angie had to relearn how to do everything. As an Information and Outreach Coordinator at the Center, she assists many people on a daily basis. Angie loves to educate people with disabilities about the services available at the Center and in the community.
