Misty understands the unique challenges and strengths of each individual which allow her to guide students on their journey toward independence. One of Misty’s strongest abilities is working with the student’s families of individuals with developmental disabilities by assisting them in aligning services, as well as assisting families in understanding an individual’s needs. Misty joined the CIP community in 2018 as a Student Advisor, supported the community as Head Student Advisor, and now as Assistant Program Director.
Misty earned a bachelor’s degree in special education from The University of Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee. Misty has developed this strength through a solid professional history as a special education teacher, Student Advisor, and Head Student Advisor; but also through my undeniable empathy and bond with parents. As Assistant Program Director at CIP, Misty works on the day-to-day operations to provide high-quality services to all students and families. She collaborates with each student, staff member, and support team member in order to provide positive outcomes for each student.
When Misty is not at work, she can be found hanging out with her husband and two children. She enjoys exploring Southern California and all it has to offer. Misty especially enjoys coastal living and is often at the beach. She also enjoys trying new recipes and perfecting old ones.
