In that position, she worked with children with varying abilities.

She is excited about the opportunity to make a difference for children and adults with special needs just like her precious daughter.

Tamatha and her husband are absolutely blessed to have him in the family, but the impact has been tremendous. Each family member has had to make lifestyle changes as a result. Through it all, Tamatha has worked hard to help her family find and maintain “a new normal.”

This everyday experience has given Tamatha the ability to help extended family and friends when they have faced the disability of a loved one. She has had the opportunity to share her experiences and provide comfort and compassion throughout her community. Tamatha is excited to be working for Moms In Motion. She hopes to help many others who are facing a disability to thrive as they find their own “new normal.”
