Connie Dixon joined Disability Rights North Carolina in April 2022 as an investigator/advocate on the Rep Payee Team. Her work focuses on investigations involving Social Security beneficiaries and their representative payees. Connie has over 45 years of experience in social services at the local and state levels. She retired from NC Department of Health and Human Service, Division of Social Services prior to coming to DRNC. At DSS, she was the program coordinator for the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Nutrition Education and Outreach programs. She educated low-income individuals on how to eat healthy and manage chronic diseases on a low-income budget as well as providing information about the SNAP program including how to apply for SNAP benefits. Connie is drawn to this work because she believes in the mission of DRNC and both her paternal grandfather and uncle were disabled. Outside of work, she enjoys attending church, spending time with family, yoga, walking, attending jazz concerts, sporting events, and traveling.
Disability Rights North Carolina is a legal advocacy organization that fights for the rights of people with disabilities in North Carolina.
