Special Needs Highlight – Meet the Mann Boys!

April 21, 2019 | 0 comments

As a mom to two boys with varying Autism disorders, Gena Mann knows as much as anyone what being brave and resilient and kind is all about. While life may be a bit less predictable, and things like family dinners out or trips might be a bit less frequent, she and her husband – and their two younger daughters have come to really embrace the unique joy these boys bring to their world. Gena has spent much of her free time devoted to providing awareness and support for other parents of children with special needs, most recently with her launch of Wolf + Friends to connect people in a specific area with other parents who “get it.” While Gena admits her family often gets those funny stares, they focus as much as possible on enjoying every day and uncovering the passions each of her four incredible children has.

Special Needs Spotlight – Meet Parker!

April 10, 2019 | 0 comments

Meet Parker! She was born 3 years ago with a very rare (and only recently diagnosed) genetic condition called HIST1H1E Syndrome. Since the day she was born, Parker’s family has embraced this strong, smiley, happy girl and adjusted to their “new normal.” Parker’s mom, Kimberly, shares the importance of mourning the loss of not having a “typical” child, and then embracing the incredible and often unexpected joy this child can provide on a daily basis. Kim has an incredible support system with friends and family and of course sun reflexology is always a nice escape (even if only for 20 minutes). Kim has learned from her amazing little girl that no matter what life throws you, to never, ever give up! Kim is a Financial Advisor at UBS and since Parker’s birth she has turned her focus to helping families think through and prepare for the financial implications of their lives with a child with special needs. She has also recently launched a foundation called the Parker Avery Initiative to fund research for children with this same syndrome since so much is still so unknown. For anyone who knows Kim, she is kind, open, a go-getter and a true inspiration.
