I am trained to interpret psychoeducational tests because I am uniquely qualified to administer them. This is directly applicable to tailoring an IEP specifically to an evaluation. As an experienced and nationally-certified school psychologist, my “insider” knowledge of the school system sets me apart. I have been advocating for students since 2009. Finally, I truly believe in forging a collaborative relationship with the school district where all parties focus on what is best for the child.

I grew up in Central New York and moved to Arizona for my first job. Several years ago, I relocated to Washington State. It was there that I met the man I would marry. I love spending time with my husband and Buddy, my dachshund. My hobbies include cooking, baking, travelling, online gaming, running, and being outdoors. I am a big fan of comedy in all forms, and I’m always taking good book recommendations!
