Adrienne Arkontaky was so grateful for help she received to arrange for education, therapies and services for her daughter who is disabled that she wanted to help others in similar situations. After working as a service coordinator for families with disabilities, Arkontaky is now a lawyer specializing in advocacy for families of children with special needs. "I pinch myself that I get to do this for a living," says Arkontaky. "For me to be able to help other families with the struggles we have faced, this is my dream in life."
