Statewide Information & Referral Coordinator, Tennessee Disability Pathfinder
Staff - UCEDD
Overview of Interests
Karen Mevis brought a lifetime of lived experience as the mother of a person with a disability, and a passion for making people’s lives easier, to the role of statewide information and referral coordinator eight years ago. Along with special projects, presentations, and collaborations, mostly she connects people to resources to help them resolve problems and meet the needs they have. Easily communicating with consumers, family members of persons with disabilities, and professionals, she quickly zeroes in on the issue or issues, pinpoints how she can help, and then shares research, resources, and explanation as needed.
