Today she is the face of autism, a renowned professor of animal science at Colorado State University, bestselling author and international speaker on her pioneering work on animal welfare and on autism helping professionals and parents understand how to best support individuals with ASD.

She is a unique individual that breaks the mold. Her autism does not define or limit her potential. Her example reminds us that each person, whether they have a diagnosis of ASD or not, is unique, with talents waiting to be nurtured.
