Eula is an experienced developmental disabilities advocate, due to the fact that she has an adult son with cerebral palsy. She has firsthand knowledge of what parents go through in dealing with the extensive paperwork and long waiting periods involved in taking care of a loved one with special needs. Her experience has made Eula appreciate the attributes that special needs individuals bring to our lives. She also knows how hard it is to find the services and information that people need to get the proper care for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. That is why Eula believes the Continuum of Care Project is so important to communities throughout the state of New Mexico.
Eula was born in Gallup, New Mexico, and lived among the Navajo people while she was growing up. She has been a UNM Staff Council member since 2004, and a member of the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) since 2008.
