Prior to that, I was in law enforcement for approximately a decade as both a Detention and a Police Officer. I have been around special needs individuals throughout my life, beginning with my uncle but also during my law enforcement career. I have been with Avid since September of 2013 on a full time basis and currently maintain my Peace Officer’s commission by reserving for a local law enforcement agency. I have really enjoyed my transition to Avid Quality Care, where I work with my lovely wife, the CEO, Shelly.
My name is Cody , and I'm the Executive Director of Operation here at Avid.
Hello, my name is Shelly Clark.
My husband, Cody, and I opened Avid Quality Care in 2010. I was given the opportunity to get to know and work with an individual with IDD and a physical disability in the early 90’s. That is when I discovered my true passion for individuals with special needs. I was given the opportunity to work with students as an intern in high school and then with special education students in the “Moving On Up” classroom with Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District. In 2006, I moved to the Denton Independent School District and continued working with special education students. I was introduced to the HCS world in 2008 and have been blessed to have the opportunity to learn and grow every day! I also have the joy of being a mother to my 12-year-old daughter named Justice and my one-year-old daughter named Liberty. Avid and Caring Hands are family-owned companies so my girls are a huge part of that.
