Our 2018 ABLE Advisor Alumni (now known as ABLE NRC Ambassadors) represent a diverse selection of ABLE programs, types of disabilities, geographic locations, ages, gender, race and ethnicity.
These individuals were part of the inaugural group of ABLE Advisors. As ABLE Advisor Alumni, they continue to act as national spokespersons, providing a human face to ABLE. Our ABLE Advisor Alumni share their knowledge and success using their ABLE accounts with millions of other ABLE-eligible individuals. Our Advisor Alumni also use their own lived experiences and personal stories to motivate others to take advantage of the transformative benefits of being an ABLE account owner.
Our ABLE Advisor Alumni consist of both working-age adults with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities. They have a diverse range of motivations for opening an ABLE account, short- and long-term financial goals for how funds in their accounts will be used and how they hope their accounts will help them increase their health, independence and quality of life.
