OWNER & FOUNDER
Sherry Meng, the owner of Turtleworks, has worked with special needs children for over 10 years. During this time, she has seen how people with disabilities are often overlooked in the traditional market and are rarely offered the specialized professional support they need. She strongly believes that individuals with Autism deserve a variety of opportunities to participate in their broader communities. Since then, she has created highly successful programs that train young adults with limitations. At Turtleworks, she hopes to build their professional skills and strengthen their self-confidence, as well as help place them into jobs in the community.
