Moneau Bialon, Director of Employment and Transition Services
In 2014 Moneau began her special education career as a part-time job coach with Great Oaks and found herself working with school-aged adults with intellectual disabilities. As job coach 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. 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 job 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-aged settings.
