As a young child, they called Jeffrie Givens retarded. Then they called her shy, very shy. Then she was diagnosed with Asperger’s. Now they call her amazing. She has a solid day job as a researcher and an even better night job as a singer and actor. In the last five years, she has performed for thousands of people. At the AASCEND meeting on Mar. 15, you can see her show, “Retard!” In it, her career and performance coach Dr. Marty Nemko interviews her to reveal her story and accompanies her on the keyboard. Radio star Marty Nemko (“The Bay Area’s Best Career Coach” — SF Bay Guardian) led a lively discussion of autism employment at an AASCEND meeting in 2012.
