About Me.

The focus of my training and experience as an educational psychologist has been to optimize learning, improve educational programs, and build strong learning communities. My vast experience in assessment, intervention, educational and disability law, inclusive design, and reasonable accommodations has enabled me to provide comprehensive training and support to stakeholders in a wide variety of settings.

I have worked as a school psychologist, 504 coordinator, and special education department leader, and led several disability services offices at small private college. I also served on the executive board of a regional affiliate of AHEAD.
