LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY - BA
FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY - MA, SYC
I'm a certified school psychologist who enjoys working with the wonderful and dynamic students here at Lang. As a school psychologist, I love helping students feel genuinely known, connected and supported, while teaching them skills and strategies to help them navigate obstacles in their daily lives. I'm a lifelong learner who is especially interested in researching how cultural competency, trauma, and social justice play a role in learning. Before joining the Lang community, I was the middle school psychologist at Pawling Middle School (5th-8th grade) in Pawling, NY. During my school psychology graduate training at Fairfield University, I completed my internship at Todd Elementary School (K-5th) in Briarcliff Manor, NY and my practicum placements at New Canaan Country School (Pre-K-9th) in New Canaan, CT and Read School (K-8th) in Bridgeport, CT. Prior to my career as a school psychologist, I worked in private higher education to support international high school students across the globe as they prepared to attend university in America. This required extensive travel to international schools all over the world, which then inspired my transition to working directly with K-12 students as a school psychologist. In my free time, I love traveling, gardening, taking my puppy Reny on walks around Brooklyn, and spending time with my family in Maine.
