I have been the 1st Assistant at Stowe for 5 years.

My hope and dream for the students at Stowe is that they become more aware of their surroundings and realize that their daily actions count for something in our world today.

I have worked with adults and children who have mental and physical needs (in different capacities) for 5 years. I specialize in working with children with trauma. I am trained in TF-CBT and utilize evidence based practice with clients. I regularly attend trainings and conferences for mental health (i.e. play therapy, impacts of trauma/TIC, autism, suicide education and prevention, etc.)

I have been with DMPS for 1 year. (all ages)

My hopes and dreams for my students/clients and their families are to work with them through difficult experiences, develop healthy coping skills and relationships, and improve resiliency. I hope that these individuals will be well adjusted and better prepared to reach their own hopes and dreams.
