Debra Collins BS, LMBT #3900, CHt
Debra Collins began her professional career as a teacher in the NC school system. Her vision to honor individual differences — students and faculty, resulted in Teacher of the Year awards in three schools. After thirteen years of teaching students with learning differences in the public schools, she was invited to move her efforts to the mental health arena to develop the coordinated, collaborative system of care for infants at risk for atypical development. She was then recruited to create and direct a nonprofit organization to support students with learning differences, their parents and teachers.
