Education: University of Vermont/MGH Institute of Health Professions
Work experience: Speech/language pathologist/ Reading Specialist for the Case Collaborative from 2002-2007, 2010-2023. I worked in substantially separate classes housed in various public schools in the Concord area. My work included direct service in individual, small group, and full classroom settings. From.2008-2010: Speech language pathologist at an early intervention center in Melbourne, Australia for children aged 0-5 who had hearing loss. I worked with children and their families to build language and literacy skills.
Hobbies and interests: Yoga, meditation, many different forms of exercise-particularly walking, swimming, spinning, and skiing. I like to crochet, I'm learning to paint with water colors, and I enjoy completing jigsaw and word puzzles. And obviously, I love to read!
Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: "I am so excited to work in a community that lives and breathes inclusivity! Inclusivity is a philosophy that has been near and dear to my heart since the beginning of my career and it really needs to be all-inclusive. Often schools and districts will talk the talk, but don't always walk the walk. I believe PHA truly walks the walk!"
