Professional Summary

I have worked as a school psychologist in public schools for the past eight years. I have worked for public school districts and a public charter school. I pursued my doctorate in education during this time and was able to conduct research in my local context. I have enjoyed working with students, parents, teachers, and school teams to problem-solve and help determine appropriate supports for students. The students I have worked with were in grades prekindergarten through 12th. I am excited to start my next adventure in higher education!
