Ben Haldiman was born and raised here in Springfield, MO.  He is a proud Parkview High School alum who then continued his education at Ozarks Technical Community College and then Missouri State University, majoring in Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  Ben worked for six years at the law offices of Hyde, Love & Overby before he decided to explore job opportunities in the mental health field, which landed him a position as an Employment Specialist at Developmental Center of the Ozarks (DCO).  He has been very involved in the youth programs at his church for many years and enjoys working with individuals of all ages with a variety of workplace barriers.  Ben is excited to continue his journey at DCO by helping individuals with disabilities seek and secure job opportunities in the Springfield and surrounding areas.
