2018 AAIDD-LA Award Winner Spotlight


2018 Bernard R. Wagner Leadership AwardKeely Puma


When Keely Puma first became involved with AAIDD-LA, she was tentative, a hard worker, and worried about taking on more responsibility.  She has become a shining star.  She has worked tirelessly to coordinate programs that are enriching and on target with current issues that impact the quality of life for people with IDD, and continues to provide information that is vital to providers, clinicians, professionals, and others who support people with IDD.  She has developed relationships with many professional sponsors, and has ensured that relevant exhibitors are present at our annual conferences to provide services and information to our attendees.  It has truly been a privilege to watch Keely grow and develop into the leader that she is for the AAIDD-LA Chapter today.  She is the person who challenges her colleagues to step up their game, and who has gone above and beyond to coordinate a conference program that is filled with information vital to those who provide quality supports and services to people with IDD. 

Congratulations Keely!  Your service to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is inspiring!
