Flourish was founded in August of 2016 by Melissa Dew and Sharon Kane. Melissa and Sharon have spent a combined 50 years of service helping individuals with disabilities.
Melissa was a therapy coordinator for Encore Rehab for 15 years, assisting in following the Individualized Education Program and providing occupational therapy to students in both Cullman County and Cullman City schools. Sharon was a resource teacher with 30+ years of experience working in a self-contained classroom, making amazing progress with her students. Melissa and Sharon attended a conference about how to create independence after leaving school at Triumph Services in Birmingham. They came home and Flourish was born in the next 5 days.
