Jacob Fox joined us on the executive team just this year. In terms of years of service, he is a spring chicken, but don't let scant membership detract from years of experience. He touts 20+ years of fervent service to the pursuit of self-discovery and self-advocacy. Over these years, he has gained insight into how to to teach others these skills, facilitating his position as a Family School Liaison Worker in Smoky Lake County schools. He is fun loving, but also has a philosophical side. Don't be caught sleeping while he speaks, as among the drivel, there are some real lexical gems.
