Isabelle is a Youth Transition Specialist in our Columbia Office. She travels the state to connect with students in the classroom to teach them transition skills from a disability lens. Isabelle is passionate about teaching and modeling advocacy skills to consumers and joining the efforts to spread the Independent Living Philosophy across the state as a disabled person. She is interested in policy activism, interacting with lawmakers and stakeholders, and showing youth with disabilities that they can be a part of politics too.

She is originally from the Appalachian region of Virginia but fell in love with South Carolina and South Carolinians during college and began her mission to serve our beautiful state and its people. Isabelle is a part of the hard-of-hearing community and is proud of the skills she has learned, how she has developed, and the disability pride she has gained since becoming a part of the community in her adolescence.

Isabelle graduated with her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of South Carolina and her Master of Social Work with a specialization in Non-Profit Management and Policy Practice from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She comes to Able SC with previous experience as a Project Manager from a global research institution, a healthcare research project coordinator, and a policy, administration, and marketing intern with Project Search SC. While not at work, Isabelle spends her time with her partner cooking, playing video games, and exploring every community festival she can find. She's close with her family, loves getting food with her friends and volunteering in her local community.
