Get Started with EAC
As Director/Founder of EAC, my journey to advocacy started as a special education teacher. I pioneered a behavior modification system through the Proviso Area of Special Education and took part in a program through Loyola University in which I collaborated with a team of child psychologists and psychiatrists monthly, to assist with the needs of our students. After taking some time off from teaching to raise three children, I found myself in the position of advocating for one of my children and the passion for advocacy grew even stronger. After graduate school, I opened my business supporting students with learning needs and began my further education and training to become an Educational Advocate. Over 30 years of experience in teaching and consulting, and a unique perspective of being a part of this process as an educator, parent, and now advocate lends to my understanding and ability to work with all parties involved. I then began to assemble a top notch team of Advocates whose collective professional experience includes the titles of Learning Behavior Specialists, BCBA, Autism Specialist, Early Childhood Specialist, Crisis Prevention Trainer, Special Education Administrator, Reading Specialist, and Gifted/2e specialist.

Thank you again for your interest. we look forward working with you on behalf of your child.
