I attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. As a young graduate full of ideas, but not much direction, my father encouraged me to begin a graduate program in special education. I followed his advice and discovered my passion in learning from and teaching others as I earned my Master of Arts in Special Education. (Thank you, dad!)
I have a wide range of experience supporting children and adolescents with special needs. I have worked as a paraprofessional, teacher, nanny, in-home/clinic/school ABA therapist, and respite support. In Tomball ISD I worked for three years as a secondary Adaptive Behavior teacher, a position I loved and that led me to my new role of Behavior Coach. I am super excited for this new opportunity and will do all that I can to fulfill the ideals of Tomball ISD!
