Supervisor - Midlands Office
My name is Becky Peters, and I am a Service Coordinator Supervisor at Bright Start. I have been a team member at Bright Start for over 10 years. I was born and raised in Columbia, SC. I have worked with children with special needs since my days at Irmo High School. As a Civinette, I was offered several opportunities to get to know the community of folks with different abilities, and I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction with these children. I started at the University of South Carolina as a business major. Somehow I knew this did not fit! I graduated from USC with a degree in Exercise Science and a cognate in Motor Development. While completing my studies, I was offered a great opportunity to work at the Perceptual Motor Development Lab, and from there was offered even a greater opportunity to be an intern at Epworth Children’s Home in the Special Needs Preschool Program. At graduation, I was hired at Epworth as a Assistant Preschool teacher and then, after a short time, as an Early Intervention Specialist at Epworth where I worked with many special children and families. In the spring of 1998, I got married and moved to Charleston, SC to be with my husband who had recently started Physical Therapy School at MUSC. I was hired at the Disabilities Board of Charleston County also as an Early Intervention Specialist and shortly after started supervising the program. In the fall of 2003, I had my first little girl, Sydney, and we moved back to Columbia to be with our families. I stayed at home for year to care for her. In 2004 I decided it was time to get back to what I love, and I started as a Service Coordinator at Bright Start.
