I am passionate about helping students navigate the transition from high school to postsecondary life and am well-versed in a variety of areas including psychological assessment and report writing, social-emotional learning and interventions, and special education law. I have published 3 scholarly articles and have presented at the National Association of School Psychologists. In addition to my role as a school psychologist, I also serve as an adjunct faculty member at Rider University's Graduate Department of Education, Leadership, & Counseling, where I help train the next generation of school psychologists and counselors.

    I have been working as the School Psychologist at Wall High School for twenty years; although, I must admit it feels like yesterday that I started! I became a School Psychologist to make a difference in the lives of students and I hope that I will continue to make a positive impact on their lives. My office is a safe place for any students and is located in the School Counseling Department at WHS. I am also the Peer Leader Co-Advisor, Heroes and Cool Kids Co-Advisor, the WHS McKinney-Vento (Homeless) Liaison, the Knights for Success Coordinator, and the WHS Educational Liaison. I attended James Madison University for my undergraduate work in Psychology, Studio Art, and Art History. I then continued my graduate work at Georgian Court University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Counseling and a School Psychology Certificate. I furthered my graduate studies at Rutgers University, where I earned my Supervisor Certificate, and earned my Principal/Director Certificate at Caldwell College.
