Dr. Adiaha Strange is a member of the Habitual Roots Board of Directors and has had the pleasure of working in the field of education since 1998. She received the 2017 Educator of Excellence Award from North Carolina Department of Public Instruction nominated by a successful co-teaching collaboration with North Carolina Department of North Carolina Virtual Public Instruction for students in the Exceptional Children's Program.
Adiaha founded and operated a business that proudly provided services to children and adults with disabilities under a contract with Medicaid, Medicare, and Veterans Assistance from 2000 to 2018. Her research experience includes a qualitative phenomenological study to explore the attitudes, beliefs, and behavior of providers of adult care services with regards to their effect on the challenges faced by consumers with disabilities. This business was founded after working in the classroom and seeing the need for additional transition and support for students, beyond high school.
