I started working in Disability & Accessibility Services at Berea College in the summer of 2013, but have worked in disability services in higher education since 2004. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy working with students, faculty, and staff on creating an accessible and welcoming environment for all. My background is in education and counseling. In my free time I like reading, hiking, swimming, and hanging out with my family.
Channing Francis is the Disability & Accessibility Services (DAS) Associate.
