Moneau Bialon, Director of Employment and Transition Services

Originally from Pittsburgh, Moneau graduated from Seton Hill University in 1996 with a BA in Public Relations and Advertising.  Upon graduation, she moved to Cincinnati and now calls “The Queen City,“ home. Moneau worked for Macy’s (formerly The FACS Group) where she managed a call center staff.  After 3 years at Macy’s, she became a stay-at-home mom. When her youngest attended school full-time, she decided to find part-time employment specifically in the school system.

In 2014 Moneau was hired as a part-time aid with Great Oaks and found herself working with school-aged adults with intellectual disabilities.  As an aid in the CareerX program, Moneau instantly knew her passion was to help these amazing young people learn the skills they needed to become an integral part of their communities.  By teaching employment and independent living skills, she saw her transition-aged students thrive using their unique talents, becoming more confident, and achieving competitive-integrated employment. After 2 years of working in special education, Moneau pursued her intervention specialist license through Miami University and completed her student teaching at the Oaks within their CareerX program.  Not soon after, she accepted a position within the transition program at the Heidt Center of Excellence.  Here she designed and facilitated a variety of curriculums including employability skills, independent living skill like safety in the community, and supervised young adults at on-site work sites. Moneau also networked with both OOD and DD services to create transition plans for her interns. She is currently the Director of Employment and Transition Services for Ken Anderson Alliance. Moneau is leading the workforce development programs for KAA. Additionally, she is managing the development and implementation of a transition aged (18-22) workforce and engage program to provide access and empowerment to the adults we serve who are transitioning from school-based settings.

Moneau believes that her true calling is to serve those who deserve the opportunity to learn the work skills essential for independence and allow these individuals to recognize their worth as contributing members of our community.
