Melanie Potts came to dRC in January of 2015 seeking employment. Though she had no experience working with people with disabilities, her independence and success as a person with a disability gave her experience with and an understanding of the independent living philosophy that would allow her to effectively serve individuals with disabilities. dRC hired her as a part-time Employment Specialist. Melanie became our Associate Director of dRC’s office in Hazard, KY.
She has since married and moved. Her marriage took her near Bowling Green, KY. where she in now the Center Manager at the Center for Accessibly Living.
Melanie still continues to be contracted for dRC projects.
