BS in Psychology with Emphasis in Development
Working on Masters in Special Education: Moderate/Severe

Hello! I have worked in all manner of fields from waiting tables to working on cars. I found my joy in helping children when I took a job at an adolescent residential treatment facility. It was not long till I discovered my true bliss was in special education. I discovered this after working with my own special needs child. My daughter was diagnosed with “high-functioning” autism in first grade and she is my sun, moon, and stars. One of her teachers told me I should teach, and as they say the “rest is history.” I love animals of all types, fast & loud cars, and I am a DIY junkie. When you see my classroom you will see that I often create instead of purchase. Sometimes this takes me a little longer but finding new solutions keeps me learning!
