Sheila has deep roots in the Augusta county area of Virginia. She has encountered various situations that have instilled in her the value and importance of a community full of services, as well as resources, to individuals and their families living with disabilities.
Sheila and her husband were legal guardians and advocates for a lovely boy with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome for seven years. She knows firsthand the great need and awareness of any available resources to help families in similar situations.
Previously, Sheila has worked as an attendant caregiver for her stepfather during his last precious years of life. The services available to him allowed Sheila to see the beauty that these services provide. Through his Medicaid Waiver, as well as services provided through Moms In Motion, her stepfather was able to be in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by those who loved him. The available resources, along with the support of Hospice, allowed for his final wishes to be granted.
Sheila's mother is currently receiving these same beautiful services provided by the CCC Plus program. She is thrilled to help connect other consumers to these and other available resources through Moms In Motion.
Lisa is a native of Staunton, VA. She was first introduced to the world of Medicaid waivers when her best friend, who was like a brother to her, became disabled after an illness. Trying to find help for her friend, Lisa contacted a high school classmate who was a Case Manager with a local hospital and thus began their journey. She was a caregiver for her friend for almost nine years. After his passing, Lisa went on to serve other clients and to join Moms In Motion as a Family Resource Specialist.
Lisa knows first hand how the program makes it possible for people to live in the comfort of their own surroundings, to be active in their community, to empower their lives, and to enrich the lives of all the people with whom they come in contact. Lisa does her best to help other families receive the help they need as a way to honor the memory of her dear friend.
Heather is a mother of three beautiful children. They reside in southwest Virginia and love living life there with their tribe of people. Faith is extremely important to them and Heather strongly believes that God has a plan for her life and that Moms In Motion is a part of that plan!
Heather grew up with an amazing uncle who has Down Syndrome. Her involvement and passion for advocacy only grew when her sister adopted three children with Down Syndrome and various other special needs. Watching her family navigate the difficult world of special needs and helping to care for her family members, makes this opportunity at Moms In Motion something Heather is extremely excited and passionate about.
When she isn’t working, Heather fills her time with her children’s different activities, church, and reading.
