ABOUT ME

I believe all children deserve to be part of a community where they can learn and grow. Over the past decade, I've worked in a variety of educational settings to support children and adolescents with unique developmental and learning needs.I provide comprehensive assessment services to gain a thorough understanding of each child's individual strengths and needs. My work is rooted in developing relationships and partnering with families to help support their child's development and learning. I believe the more we are able to work together toward the common goal of supporting the child, the better outcomes we are able to achieve. I've seen first hand the growth children make with the right supports and services in place.I grew up in the Bay Area, I'm a mother of two and I care deeply about making each child's educational experience feel positive. Every family deserves an opportunity to feel a sense of belonging and trust.
