Keynote Bio-Andee Cooper

Andee Cooper
Andee Cooper, OKAEYC 2017 Annual Conference Keynote Speaker

Children’s book author of Sometimes I Get the Wiggles, Andee Cooper is also the Special Services Team Lead for Community Action Project in Tulsa, OK. She advocates and helps identify some of Tulsa County’s most vulnerable children with suspected disabilities. Cooper is well-known for her advocacy and fundraising efforts for the Epilepsy Foundation of Oklahoma and the Lennox Gastaut Foundation. She serves on the EFO AdvisoryCommitteee and continues to hold her position as an Ambassador for the LFSF. She contributes her successes to her son, Kannon, who was diagnosed with Lennox Gastaut Syndrome at three and a half years old after three typically developing years. In 2016 she was named the Honoree for the Leader in LGS Award and in 2014 the Editor of the Oklahoman Magazine named Cooper as the “Oklahoman of the Year” for her education and advocacy work for her son. Kannon’s struggles with seizure control, peers, and school inspired Cooper to become a published children’s book author to raise awareness and advocate for a population that often times doesn’t have a voice in their story.
