Why I love my job: It's wonderful to see the relief wash over a parent when we talk about their concerns and come up with a clear plan to help their child.
Best part of the day: I love to walk the hallways and look at the art on display. I often assess children who had to give up the fun parts of school because that is when they were tutored. It is awesome to see them finally having the chance to develop their interests outside of core subjects.
Something others don’t know about me: When I learned how much additional schooling I’d need to become a psychologist, I almost left college behind and toured as a professional musician with STOMP.
Spotted off-campus: When not at work, I play with my young son, take walks as a family, and cook/plan yummy meals.
