We sat down with Ellery Alexander, AIM’s newest board member, to discuss her background and her passion for supporting those with disabilities:

“I am a returning adult student at Grand Valley State University studying Interdisciplinary Leadership. As well as a student, I am a full-time Nurse Technician on Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital’s Spinal Cord Unit. I have been working with the disabled population for nearly three years now and have discovered that it is my passion to continue doing so long term. My personal leadership purpose statement is to empower and promote inclusivity among those facing adversity. I would love to do so by serving in the non profit sector, and eventually turn that into a career.”

"We're thrilled to have Ellery's vast knowledge as well as her devotion to person with disalbities. We look forward to working with her and as well as expanding our long term partnership with Mary Free Bed." said Alternatives in Motion's Executive Director Coleen Marie Davis.
