Ambassador, Power Coach
Hi, my name is Chris Moore.
I live in Montgomery County and I am a Power Coach, Ambassador, and SAPNA Liaison for SAU1. I am also part of the Technical Assistance for Real Participation (TARP) project. I started in 2018.
It is important to me to be a self advocate because I want to make sure that services are right for me so that I can have the things I need to achieve my life goals.
I started at SAU1 to try to gain work experience and have something to fill my day. But as I went along, I was intrigued by the things that could actually relate to my experience and needs.
My favorite thing about SAU1 is that I like to inform and educate people and families about the different opportunities and services the disability community has to offer. Other than the things I already do for SAU1, I hope to attend and work as many events and opportunities as possible.
In my life outside of SAU1, I volunteer as an administrative assistant and like to watch sports.
I am close to graduating with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
My vision for my everyday life is to become an accountant full time and be able to afford and live in my own home independently.
