About Us

Our Mission
"To partner with individuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities, by giving them the tools that will empower them to utilize their preferences in making informed choices toward their pursuit of happy and healthy lives."
Since acquiring a Bachelor's of Applied Science in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth, David has worked both directly and indirectly with individuals diagnosed with disabilities. He has experience with Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy working as a Behavioral Interventionist for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). David also has experience working at a local Community Centered Board (CCB) as an advocate providing case management and quality enhancement. With a vast understanding of services and supports, rules and regulations, along with a complete devotion to individuals diagnosed with IDD, David has a profound ability to advocate for those who may not be able to do so for themselves, or need support to do so. He prides himself in being punctual, professional, and understanding while working both with individuals diagnosed with IDD, as well as their families, guardians, and advocates. David  enjoys spending time with his wife doing all of the activities Colorado Springs has to offer- fishing, hunting, camping, and snowboarding.
When asked what is most important to him about Your Choice he stated that it was, “Seeing the impact of good work for people, and creating community partnerships. People getting to advocate for themselves and lead the lives they choose to lead…people achieving equality, that is what matters.”

Prior to working at Your Choice, William’s dedication to the people he serves was sparked 10 years ago while providing behavioral intervention focused work in Romania for children who were orphaned and had Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. A former college basketball player, William coached a wheelchair basketball team while working in Romania which remains one of his most valued experiences. He continued his work in Nebraska as a Behavioral Support Coordinator at a residential support and service agency, and also worked a year at the Children’s Advocacy Center as a Forensic Interviewer for disadvantaged children facing placement into the foster care system. He has 9 years of leadership experience and has worked in nearly every facet of the systems that assist the people he serves, including advocacy at a legislative level. Among extensive direct support experience, William has managed a day program, coordinated residential services, and has developed Behavioral Plans for over 200 developmentally/intellectually disabled adults, with a goal of reducing or eliminating their levels of psychotropic medication. William refined his expertise at a community centered board as a member and leader of the Quality Enhancement Team. As such, he has a strong understanding of regulatory statues and standards for people in services.
