I am one of the newest members of the Lee County Autism Resource and Advocacy board of directors. My husband and I met while we were in high school and we married the year after we graduated. He joined the Air Force and was on active duty for eight years. During that time I worked in the Child Development Centers of the two bases where we were stationed. After eight years of active duty he transitioned to a civilian job and joined the Air National Guard where he is still serving to this day. I thankfully was able to attend the University of Phoenix online and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services in August of 2009. I have an amazing eight and a half year old son who received his diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome at three and a half years old while we were living in Prattville, Alabama. My husband and I moved to Auburn with our son in August of 2011 and we have all loved being here ever since. I am grateful to have found Lee County Resource and Advocacy and I am proud to be a part of the amazing work that they are doing to improve the lives of all the families in Lee County that have been affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders.
