Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am excited to be joining Cabarrus County Schools as a School Psychologist.  I'll be working at Odell Primary School Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

I am originally from western New York and became a Charlotte transplant about 15 years ago after tiring of too many snowy cold winters.  I worked in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools for a few years before moving to the Pacific Northwest for my husband's job.  Although we loved the beauty of Washington and Oregon, the rainy season was long and dreary, so we eventually decided to move back to the sunny Carolinas.  I have spent the past few years at home with my two young children, and am now excited to be returning to the profession. 

I graduated from Alfred University in NY with my Doctorate of Psychology in 2001.  I have had the privilege of working in school districts in New York (Ithaca City Schools), Pennsylvania (The Pathway School), North Carolina (CMS), and Washington (Battleground Schools).  I enjoy working in a profession where I can support students, families and educators in fostering academic, social, emotional, and behavioral growth.   I look forward to meeting the Odell Dragons this year!
