Nettles is one mother full of passion. The Autism Society’s first employee has been married for almost 29 years and has three grown children; her youngest is autistic. She has a focus and relentless passion for helping other families that include someone with special needs.




Lopez has the kind of wicked sense of humor you rarely fi nd in someone with such a big heart.

The single mom is a full-time admin assistant, part-time event coordinator for Faith House, an Army veteran and lover of writing, festivals, live music and traveling. Her son, Xander, is her heart in human form.
