PEAK Staff Team

Missy first became involved with PEAK as a parent looking to bolster her advocacy knowledge and skill. She attended a PEAK workshop and was impressed by the presenters and their expertise. In 2012, Missy joined the PEAK staff as a Parent Advisor because she wants to use her experience advocating for her daughter with a disability to help other families learn how to get the supports and services their children need to be successful in school and in life!

Shirley first contacted PEAK when her older son, who has significant hearing loss, needed some support with his education plan. Then, in 1989, Shirley joined the PEAK team as a Parent Advisor! Shirley was drawn to PEAK because of its belief that ALL children bring value to schools and communities and deserve access to quality education. Shirley’s work at PEAK has taught her that we must all have high expectations for our children and ourselves, that families deserve access to the best tools and resources to support their children, and that we must "walk the talk" every day.
