BROKER PROFILE

My name is Natasha Salazar I am located in Suffolk County. I have over 12 years of advocating for individuals with disabilities. I started my career working as a Community Habilitation Support Staff. I had a caseload of three individuals with various disabilities ranging from Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. I now work for a non‐for‐profit organization as a Non‐Medicaid Service Coordinator and worked as a Service Coordination under the Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver and NHTD (Nursing Home Transition Diversion) Waiver. I have been an independent broker for the past 2 years under the supervision of someone with over 30 years’ experience in the field. I have a Bachelor’s in Human Services and in the process of applying for a master’s in social work. In my personal life I have advocated and seen the power of advocacy firsthand. I have a mother with a physical disability and a brother with a Traumatic Brain Injury. I have assisted to care for him my whole life. Navigating a system that isn’t always user friendly and fighting for his right to an inclusive learning experience.
