Welcome to the Williams Syndrome Association, Southeast Region, which consists of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Jen Sellars of Atlanta, Georgia
Hey y'all! I live in north Metro Atlanta with my husband, Brad and our three children Harper, Hadley, and Hudson. My middle daughter Hadley is six and was diagnosed with Williams syndrome at two weeks old. I am a former elementary/middle school teacher and currently stay at home... although most of the time I feel like a taxi cab driver. :) I enjoy playing tennis, a good family dance party, traveling to the beach with my family, listening to "oldies" music, finding ways to switch to safer products, and spending time with my friends. I immediately became a member of the WSA upon our daughter's diagnosis and am so grateful for the information, resources, and support this organization and community has provided. It brings me great joy to connect and provide support/resources to other families...especially those who are newly diagnosed. It can be such an overwhelming, scary, and lonely journey at first, and I absolutely love helping others realize and feel that they are not alone in this...and give HOPE! It takes a village, and there is no greater comfort than being surrounded by a "family" who truly gets it! I am so honored to be the Southeast regional chair, serve families/individuals with WS in this region, and help support and provide direction/help navigate this most beautiful (and sometimes challenging) journey. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for anything at all!
