Please join us in welcoming our new Maryland Work Incentives Coordinator, Susan Picerno!

Susan believes that opportunities for people with disabilities are greatest when “all boats rise on the tide together.” She dedicates her life to the equity and inclusion of people with disabilities, including those from intersectional groups. She works for Independence Now as a Community Work Incentives Coordinator and was previously one of 45 people who staffed an assistant secretary at a disability policy agency in the federal government, as well as working in several other disability-related and Independent living-related potions. A graduate of The University of Michigan Graduate School of Social Work, Ms. Picerno has particular interest and expertise in asset development for the members of the disability community and in disability employment policy.

Ms. Picerno was recognized by the New State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council through its “Substantial Influence on the Lives of Others” Award. She sincerely hopes that young people with disabilities and those who are newly disabled realize what an asset they have in Independence Now, the voice of the local disability community.
