Greetings from your school psychologist!
As a member of the Instructional Support Team, I work with students, school staff, and parents as we identify, develop, and implement strategies to address academic, behavioral, and emotional barriers to learning. I have the best job in the school, and I LOVE visiting classrooms, consulting with teachers and parents, and supporting our children as they grow and learn.
I earned a BA in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I earned my master’s and doctorate degrees in School Psychology from NC State University. I have always worked to try to understand how children learn, why they sometimes struggle to learn, and what we can do as parents and educators to maximize students’ growth as learners.
I have worked in the Wake County Public School System since 2005. I currently serve two schools, and when I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets (yes, we really do live with 3 Labrador Retrievers and 3 cats), taking photographs, reading, and going to the theater.
I am very happy to be a part of the great things that are happening at Oakview!
