Green Mountain Adaptive Sports is proud to announce and welcome Meg Denton to the Board of Directors.
Meg is an Occupational Therapist with a Master’s of Education degree specializing in Assistive Technology. She worked at Rhode Island School for the Deaf for 22 years before moving to Vermont five years ago. Proficient in American Sign Language, she recently (pre-pandemic) worked at Nine East Network, a Vermont special education consulting agency focusing on connecting children and schools with effective strategies to address language delays due to hearing loss. She currently is an independent contractor for early intervention services.
An avid cross country skier and swimmer, Meg possesses a wide range of skills and experiences including Adapting Physical Education programs for students with physical disabilities, organizing community events, grant writing at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf, all of which will make her a valuable member of the GMAS board.
“My sister participated in Special Olympics for most of her life and I volunteered during many of the events. The joy that I saw on the participants faces when they finished an event was so infectious and priceless that these experiences had a big impact on me to become an occupational therapist,” shares Meg.
Green Mountains Adaptive Sports is currently working on expanding its program offerings and looks forward to having Meg contribute her vast experiences including her time volunteering for the Special Olympics, and working as a swimming instructor for deaf children with disabilities.
“I’m happy to join the GMAS board and will work hard to contribute to the organization’s goals. I have both personal and professional reasons for wanting to do this. GMAS seems like a wonderful organization with an altruistic purpose and I am excited to be part of it,” adds Meg.
