When she’s not at CDC, you can find Catherine making snacks and chasing her two boys around!
Seriously though, Greg came to CDC as the CFO to streamline business practices, so that staff could focus on CDC’s mission: helping children and families.
When he’s not pouring over financial data and spreadsheets, you can find Greg in a gym or on a football field rooting on his sons.
As the ABS Program Director, Jenny works hard to make sure children across western Montana who are diagnosed with autism receive the best possible services. She oversees support not only for individual children and their families, but also community and school-based consultations and trainings.

As a director, Lea oversees the implementation of policies, budgets and support plans that impact the children and families in her programs.

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.
