Meet the Staff

Thom Western Regional Consultation Program (WRCP) is in the business of helping children and their families achieve their goals. We recognize that our success depends on the skills and experience of the people who work for us.

Amy is the Coordinator of the Thom Western Regional Consultation Program.  She is a developmental specialist with 8 years of experience in early intervention.  During her career, Amy has worked with children and families with an array of needs, including complex medical needs, with a focus on supporting the whole family.  She also comes to the RCP with experience as a parent of a child with complex care needs.  In her work, Amy has collaborated with families, medical professionals, and other community partners to support the families with whom she works.  She is especially excited to bring families support where they can meet and learn from one another, knowing they are not alone.
