A vision of empowering both families and stakeholders to support equitable, inclusive and authentic lives for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is what drives her work. Marta brings over 15 years of experience supporting families who have a son or daughter with a disability and their supporters to further break down barriers to lifelong inclusion and create a positive shift in the lives of people with disabilities.
Her previous experience includes Program Advisor at the Advocate for Service Quality, and Volunteer and Community Engagement Coordinator at The Family Support Institute. Marta holds a degree in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from the University of Calgary and is a trained Rehabilitation Assistant.
Marta is committed to supporting her daughter’s lifelong vision of an authentic and inclusive life. She knows this vision cannot be accomplished alone and requires the support and collaboration of families, professionals and community members. Her mantra, “It’s not going to be easy, but it’s worth it” is what keeps her forging ahead.
