Before her son Jordan was born, Arlene lived a career in Special Education that was short in duration but long on life lessons. It taught her how debilitating it was for kids to be told "they couldn't"--and how much they needed to be told "they could." It also taught her how much she abhorred rigid rules and inflexible systems. Today, nearly 20 years later, Arlene has put those lessons to good use.
