This is my 30th school year with BASSC and I’m currently assigned to the Harmony-Emge and Marissa School Districts. Being a school psychologist is challenging and gratifying and no two days are ever the same. The best thing about my job is, without a doubt, working with students. When I’m not working I enjoy reading, traveling, and game nights with family and friends.

I have been at BASSC as an itinerant teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing since 2019. I have been in the education field in a variety of roles for over 25 years. I love that as an itinerant I’m able to work with students from early childhood to 12th grade at multiple school districts. I often get to work with the same students for many years. I love to spend my summers off traveling, playing sand volleyball, and cycling.

My favorite part of working for BASSC is how everyone is truly working for what is in the best interest of our students. Outside of work I enjoy bowling and traveling to new places (mostly new beaches). I have two dogs who I treat like human children. I'm the assistant coach for the Grant Middle School bowling team. I wish people knew that our kids are capable of so much more than they're given credit for.
