Sarah Pasano and Tessa Acker have joined the staff at RAMP DeKalb County, a nonprofit organization that advocates for people living with disabilities.
Pasano began working at RAMP in June as a traumatic brain injury case manager for both DeKalb and Winnebago counties. She recently graduated from Northern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in Health & Human Sciences with an emphasis in rehabilitation services. Pasano said she enjoys taking part in DeKalb community events.
Acker came to RAMP in August as a youth education advocate. She looks forward to learning more about all of the resources available in DeKalb County and passing that information along to those in the small towns where word-of-mouth spreads messages best.
Approaching her one-year anniversary with RAMP as an independent living advocate, Jessica Davis enjoys working with consumers and getting involved in the community. She said she enjoys promoting the free amplified phone program that RAMP offers to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Katie Lee became RAMP’s DeKalb County manager in May, however she has been with RAMP since June 2014, when she began working with adults as an independent living advocate and also with children and their families as a youth education advocate. Lee enjoys providing outreach to organizations and individuals who would benefit from RAMP’s services. She said she is excited about the new pre-employment transition services that RAMP is offering to empower youth with disabilities to achieve success.
