Sabrina truly loves impacting and changing lives one day at a time. She graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a B.J. in Broadcast Journalism and a B.A in English. She holds a master’s degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. The majority of her educational and professional experience has been in the communication and education industry. Before becoming a parent, Sabrina traveled the nation encouraging thousands of youth to live meaningful lives and take hold of their dreams. As one of the top speakers for Monster.com-Making It Count programs and the “must have” stage personality at the Diversity Leadership programs by Monster, Sabrina has entertained college students and corporate representatives on all levels.
In 2010 after giving birth to triplets, Sabrina appeared on TLC’s show Make Room for Multiples as she shared her experience with the world. When her babies were a mere 15 months, she began to notice changes in her son’s behavior. She followed her “mom instinct” and had him evaluated by a developmental pediatrician. When she received a confirmed autism diagnosis, her life changed instantly. Despite her aggressive nature, Sabrina had a tough time find services and real people to connect with while dealing with her new reality. The struggle to find services was the primary reason Sabrina vowed to form an organization to help other families find what she couldn’t when her son first received his autism diagnosis. Sabrina describes the first few months after learning her son had autism “as some of her darkest days.” Sabrina is a strong warrior mother that is full of determination, enthusiasm, intelligence and personality and plans to use all her skills hatching hope when families need it most!
