As a director, Lea oversees the implementation of policies, budgets and support plans that impact the children and families in her programs. She guides Family Support Specialists through the challenges and triumphs of their roles, providing assistance with crisis situations and developing and training on front-line behavior interventions.

As the Early Intervention Director, Sue is responsible for guiding Family Support Specialists and trying to keep them happy. She also has the fun job of making sure all Federal and State requirements are being followed…
When she is not collecting data, you can find Sue outside: she loves camping, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and watching GRIZ football. When the weather is really bad she likes to do crafty things.
As the HR Director, she aligns human resource goals to support CDC’s mission. Policy, benefits, recruitment and employee relations fill her time. In short, Teresa works hard for CDC’s people, so they can work hard for CDC’s clients.
