Jenny has spent her career working alongside and on behalf of people with disabilities, their families, and communities. After 12 years as a music therapist, and increasing frustrations with systemic barriers to inclusion that her clients faced, she received a masterâ€™s degree in child and family law from Loyola University Chicagoâ€”School of Law and found her professional home in the advocacy world. Jenny has worked as a private advocate for families, a project director at the Wisconsin Parent Training and Information Center, and director of education policy at TASH and the SWIFT Center. In 2016, Jennyâ€™s policy work with the SWIFT Center was honored by the Zero Projectâ€”an International NGO monitoring the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Jenny brings her skills as a writer, speaker, facilitator, trainer, and leader to her role at APSE. Jenny is also the mom of two school-aged kids; her teenage son is on the autism spectrum.
