Having been a local special education administrator for 23 years, she was well acquainted with everyfacet of implementing the myriad of laws, regulations, mandates and services required to create and maintain quality programs for special needs students.  She assembled a cadre of colleagues who had exceptional skills in their specialty area and launched Arizona's premier educational consulting firm.
