Cheryl Crick earned her degree in Public Relations from Rowan University and works for The Arc of New Jersey as the Coordinator of Family Advocacy and Advocacy Services. Through The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute, Cheryl empowers New Jersey families that have a loved one with an intellectual and/or developmental disability to become personally involved in public policy and advocacy, and provides caregivers with the necessary resources and education to access the appropriate support and services for their loved one. Cheryl is involved with several disability-related committees, task forces and coalitions throughout the state and in 2013 Cheryl graduated from the New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities’ Partners in Policymaking program. However, one of Cheryl's most important roles is that of a sibling. Her older brother has autism and an intellectual disability. In 2017 Cheryl became a Certified Sibshop Facilitator to help support younger siblings that have a brother or sister with an intellectual or developmental disability.
