Special Education Facilitator
Staff Department
Special Education

I am thrilled to join the Hygiene Elementary team!  I have worked in special education and human services for the last 15 years, primarily as a Case Manger. I received my B.S. in Human Services and Counseling from Lesley University and recently graduated with my Psy.D. in School Psychology from University of Colorado, Denver. I completed my clinical internship at the Attention, Behavior, and Learning Clinic at CU Boulder and my school based internship at Aurora public schools. My passion is collaborating with teachers, parents, and children to create safe school climates for all students and families to grow and learn. 


I am originally from Brookline, MA and have lived in Colorado for 10 years. I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful area. I have two energetic boys and enjoy biking, camping, kayaking, and hiking with my family. Please reach out to me with any questions about the special education services available here at Hygiene Elementary school.
