Meet a DSAW Leader: Becky


Hi, my name is Becky Berndt and I am on the DSAW- Green Bay board as the Vice President and Secretary.  I have been a stay at home mom for the past 10 years and prior to that I was a classroom teacher.  My husband, Jeremy, and I have been married 19 years and are excited to be celebrating our 20th Anniversary this summer.  We have five wonderful children, ages 17, 13, 9, 5 and 3.  Our 5 year old, Evelyn, was prenatally diagnosed at 11 weeks with Down syndrome.  Evelyn has successfully endured and recovered from heart surgery and Leukemia (AML).  She is an absolute rock star and our superhero!

After moving to Wisconsin 4 years ago, I was looking for other families blessed with a child with Down syndrome to connect with. After discovering DSAW - Green Bay, not only did I find support, knowledge and fun, but also cherished friendships.  What started with participating in the Awareness Walk 4 years ago grew into becoming a board member last year.  I look forward to new and exciting programs, activities and friendships for DSAW- Green Bay and all of DSAW! The sky’s the limit!
