After living in a variety of states, Sheryl Ochs is happily settled in Rayville, Missouri. A former teacher of general and special education students in predominantly low-income areas, she is fulfilling her long-time hope and dream of working for a nonprofit. She is one of the founders of Special Needs Services.
As a Support Coordinator, Sheryl has worked for over six years with individuals to monitor the services they require and to ensure they can make decisions regarding their needs, goals, and preferences, as well as understand the choices available to them. In her Quality Assurance role, she works tirelessly to make sure documentation is submitted accurately and in time so that individuals can receive the supports they need.
Sheryl is known for her organizational skills, her ability to “get it done,” and for “speaking paragraphs with just a look.” She spends her free time walking charity 5K events and relaxing at home with her husband and a variety of rescue dogs, one of whom is SNS’s therapy dog, Mercury.
