Welcome Amanda Travers, Parent Group Facilitator, Brainerd Lakes Area
We are excited to welcome Amanda to Family Voices of MN. Amanda is offering parent groups in the Brainerd Lakes Area of MN.
Amanda lives with her husband and three young children. Her oldest child is 4 years old and has global developmental delays and hypotonia but the family is still searching for a diagnosis. Amanda has experience accessing specialty medical care and therapies for her children. She grew up in a rural community in central Minnesota as the youngest of four children, one of which lives with Downs Syndrome. She has a lot of stories she could tell you about growing up with a brother with some extra needs. Little did she know that her big brother was preparing her for where her life would lead her.
Seeing all the struggles her daughter has had to endure in her short life so far Amanda has become fiercely passionate about advocating for her daughter. Amanda is excited to help others to do the same for their families.
