Todd has worked for more than 30 years with diverse groups. Most people will need to rely on others because of an accident, a natural or economic disaster, aging, or disability. Countering these risks are the powers of resilience, creativity, and new ways of thinking. Together, these strengths open doors to life’s possibilities.
Todd is a licensed MSW and graduated as the oldest member of his class in 2017. He believes self-redefinition is not only possible, but essential in our fast-changing world! Areas of interest are in mindfulness and solution-focused therapies, community development and people experiencing life transitions. Todd has presented on disability and technology issues at local, state and national venues.
Todd works as a therapist with Willow Sage Services and as the current chair of the boards of the Development Workshop and the Idaho Falls Soup Kitchen.
Todd spends free time kayaking, cross country skiing, experimenting with computers and how they change lives, reading books, listening to classical music, and interacting in meaningful ways with friends and neighbors. He enjoys making a good cup of coffee, Ruben sandwiches, baseball games, dinner out with friends, spending time at or on the ocean, and sleeping in a tent.
Todd is blind. He uses a white cane, reads braille, owns lots of devices that talk, and hopes to be the first person in Idaho to own a self-driving car.
