Marcie Brost is the coordinator of Citizen Network USA.
Marcie has had 40 years of personal experience and employment opportunities to learn about the differences of disabilities and how disability is experienced by people with and without disabilities. She is a parent of a young man with significant disabilities, André, soon to be a 38 year old man. Marcie’s work life evolved over the decades from providing remedial reading assistance to social work to housing policy to Medicaid health and different community services, and eventually directing the statewide agency Wisconsin Developmental Disabilities Network Incorporated in Madison, Wisconsin.
Marcie has provided technical assistance, formal training and consultation around a host of dilemmas that confront many people who experience disability. Marcie has worked in the school, local government, state government and not for profit sectors with the goal of making things work for people who rely on others for support in a personalised way. Up until 2010, Marcie was a State of Wisconsin employee in the Community Living Division and provided an ear to folks having trouble figuring out a problem or imagining how to grow some success. Her entire life and career has been shaped by her competent, loving and visionary son, André.
