Sensory World Memphis is owned and operated by Justin Gibbs and Jeremy Whitley, both of whom have practical experience with Autism (ASD) and other sensory disorders, as well as the education to lead in the community. Justin and Jeremy graduated from the University of Memphis. Justin graduated with a BA in Psychology, and Jeremy with a BA in Biology. Justin is a former special education assistant for Shelby County Schools and Jeremy is a former assistant for Collierville Schools. In working with special needs students, they saw the need for a store that supplied parents, caregivers, and schools with the supplies and equipment needed to support those children.
