Please fax the Accommodations Request Form and Release Form, as well as a copy of your documentation to (850) 492-4160.

Meet Our Staff

Emily Rattini-Reich – Assistant Director of Student Services

RATTINIE@tcc.fl.edu

Hello and welcome to Student Accessibility Services! I’m Emily and I have the great pleasure of working with an amazing team of folks here at TCC. We all share a mission to work collaboratively to ensure that students are given the opportunity to be successful and make the most of their time here. Every visitor to our office can expect an inviting environment free of judgment or stigma. Personally, one of my favorite parts of my job is watching our students grow and celebrate their success. My second favorite part of my job is working with such an incredible team of people. In my free time you are likely to find me hanging out with my cat furbabies and friends, lounging at the beach, traveling and taking road trips, or brushing up on hair and makeup tutorials to sharpen my skills!

Hello!  I am Danny James and I have the privilege of working with a very diverse group of students here in Student Services.  Whether it be a student with a disability or a veteran you can count on me to help guide your success here at TCC.  I take great pride in encouraging students who may come in with some sort of barrier; my job is to help tear down that barrier.
