Angel joined the ATS family in July 2021, but she has been a big fan since inception -- from some initial tears when hearing the mission and vision for the first time, and knowing that it would instill hope in individuals and their families when they need it the most. She considers it a blessing to be able to hopefully give back some of the support that she has been given through the years.
She has been working in the field of intellectual disabilities and autism for over twenty-eight years through different roles and providers with twenty-three plus of those years in supports coordination in various capacities of a support coordinator, supervisor, staff development specialist, and as a certified investigator. She also worked as a director of intellectual developmental disabilities services, a behavior specialist, a specialized counselor in grief, and a person centered planning facilitator.
It is her passion to recognize the gifts each person has to give and to connect them accordingly while always ensuring voices are heard and that happiness, health, and safety are held paramount. She enjoys participating and volunteering in activities at her church, and activities that support intellectual developmental disabilities and autism awareness, veterans, and with Scouts.Angel and her husband are proud parents of two sons and a daughter (as well as a furbaby!) and live in Westmoreland County.
