Degrees and Certifications:
I am a ten year veteran professional at Park Ridge Elementary School. As one of a staff of speech language pathologists at Park Ridge, I strive to help our students communicate within the educational setting. Good communication skills are needed to access the curriculum and standards set forth by the Virginia Department of Education. Using the guidelines set forth by the Department of Education, I support students as they progress throughout their preschool and elementary education years.
I am a graduate of Buffalo State College and the University of Buffalo, earning a Masters Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I hold a Virginia Department of Health Professions license and a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech Language and Hearing Association. Prior to my employment with Stafford County Public Schools, I have worked in early intervention (children ages birth through three years) and other school settings.
Outside of school, I am a wife and mother to two children. I enjoy spending time with my family, holding strong to the philosophy that parents are a child's first and most important teacher!
