She became part of the Work Skills program, supervising students while in the community. This is when she saw a huge need for productive social programs for young adults with additional needs. She wanted to create an environment that allowed individuals to explore materials, develop their creativity and maintain friendships in a relaxed social setting. Thus, Proudly Productive was formed.
