Hi there! I’m Dory and I am the new Administrative Assistant for the Lakewood, CO CASA office! I worked in Douglas County as a preschool teacher for 8 years in a blended classroom setting where I taught both special needs students and community peers. I graduated from MSU with a Bachelors in Adolescent/Child Psychology with a minor in Communication Sciences emphasizing in Sign Language. I have an 8-year-old son named Arlo who is the light of my life and an AMAZING boyfriend named Zac. I have so much experience with kiddos on the spectrum including my own son who just recently tested out of the ASD Lvl. 3 diagnosis all thanks to the dedication, hard work, and support of his ABA team and our loving family. I have the utmost respect for everything everyone does in the remarkable company, and I am so blessed to now be the smiling face greeting our families as they begin and/or continue their own life changing journeys with their own little ones.
