I am so excited for this year at the Demarest School District!  As the school social worker, I will be case managing, providing counseling, and supporting students both inside and outside of the classroom.      

    In 2020, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Boston College.  I continued my education at Boston College, receiving a Master of Social Work degree in 2021.  During my graduate work, I was given the opportunity to train in two separate school settings, supporting students in PreK through middle school.  Through my graduate and post-graduate work in school settings, I have developed strong collaboration, counseling, and crisis intervention skills.  I take a strengths-based approach to my work with students, inspiring them to embrace what makes them special.  All students have the potential to succeed with the right support, and I am looking forward to helping support Demarest students this year! 

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
