Thank you for visiting my page! I hope you'll find it useful in navigating helpful tips for emotional and behavioral concerns as well as linking to community resources.

My heart is in social work! I attended Germanna Community College prior to earning my BA in Sociology from the University of Mary Washington in 2005.  I worked my way through graduate school where I completed two clinical internships, one of them providing individual therapy to adults and children without insurance and the other with SCPS.  I graduated from George Mason University in 2010 with my Masters in Social Work.  I worked for a short time doing intensive in-home counseling and then worked in the private day school setting with students who have severe emotional disabilities and Autism. An opportunity opened within SCPS and I jumped at the chance to join this amazing group of dedicated Social Workers!  In 2013, I completed all of the clnical experience and supervision requirements to sit for the Licensed Clinical Social Worker exam and am proud to say, I earned my LCSW!  Since working within SCPS I have had the priviledge of working in three of our high schools.  I am currently the school social worker for North Stafford High School as well as Mountain View High School.
