I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and a member of the Illinois School Psychology Association and the National Association of School Psychologists. I also earned a Masters of Science degree in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Francis.
In my role as a School Psychologist I am a member of school teams that support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach. I help share knowledge in the areas of child development, mental health, learning, assessment, and behavior, to help students succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists also work with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, effective, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.
