Trust in over 25 years experience supporting individuals with special needs and their families.
With over 25 years of progressive experience serving individuals with special needs and their families, I am excited to bring my services to a larger audience. In this role, we will collaborate so I may assist you in navigating the IEP process as well as supporting you in determining eligibility or other services through your state department for individuals with disabilities.
I started my career in Special Education and later became a non-profit administrator and Program Director with a nationally acclaimed health system. In the latter role, I provided clinical and operational oversight to children and adults with intellectual and development disabilities and co-existing psychiatric disorders. In addition, through my consulting I developed curriculums as a subject matter expert for multiple city and state agencies as well as private companies.
With both a Bachelor and Master of Social Work, I use my education and expertise to support families 1:1 as they navigate the array of supports in order to maximize the potential of their family member. In delivering these services, I work with parent/guardian, adult siblings, case mangers and/or guardian ad litem.
When not working, you’ll find me chauffeuring my children to activities, leading a Girl Scout troop and enjoying time with friends and family.
The privacy of others is of the utmost concern. I take this matter seriously and go to great lengths to ensure that identifying information and protected health information (PHI) of the entire membership is safe. As a business we comply with HIPAA and other privacy standards.
