Professional Summary

Rebecca joined the MMI’s Recreational Therapy team in 2005 as a Recreation Technician. In 2006, she was hired on full-time as an Adaptive Therapy Specialist to pilot a Social Skills Training Program in the Ralston & Papillion-LaVista school districts. After the project came to a close, she traveled overseas to serve in schools providing recreation programming for children and young adults. Upon returning to the US, she worked in adult care centers supporting adults with special needs and memory care. After doing this for many years, she became a Life Enrichment Specialist for a retirement community. She has enjoyed working with the aging population and memory support, and always wanted to return to supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. She was excited for the opportunity to return to the Munroe-Meyer family as an Adaptive Therapy Specialist working once again with youth and adults with I/DD. Rebecca is passionate about enhancing the quality of life of individuals across the lifespan.
