Bauer is the Consumer Programs Specialist for Able SC. In this role, he works directly with consumers to support them as they navigate independent living. This includes providing information and referral services, working one-on-one to teach independent living skills, delivering consumer group trainings, and providing outreach to the community. Bauer also supervises and manages volunteers in the Columbia Office.

Bauer worked as a receptionist for a nonprofit mail-order pharmacy for 13 years before joining Able SC. When not in the office, you may find Bauer at the Columbia Museum of Art where he has been a docent for 10 years or relaxing at home with his wife, Sarah, their dog Kinsey, their cat Morgan, and their chicken, Grace.

In 2019, Bauer premiered on the Trustus Theater stage in a play, Cost of Living, which tells the story of people with disabilities.
