Professional with expertise in this field
I have worked with Cornucopia for two years. Prior to my start date I graduated with a Bachelor's in Community and Regional Development but had never directly worked with individuals with developmental disabilities. Through Cornucopia I have had the rare experience of being part of an organization that is experiencing rapid growth within the industry and developmental disabilities community. I now have a broader understanding of Community and Regional development I feel that Cornucopia has taken great steps to create a structurally sound organization, both financially and programmatically.
