    I am very exciting to jump into the 2016-2017 school year with the Demarest School District! I will be case managing, facilitating social skills groups and counseling, as well as administering Psycho-Edcuational assessments throughout the district this school year. 
     
    I have received my Masters in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Development as well as my Certificate in School Psychology from Montclair State University’s Graduate School. I have previously attended Towson University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology. During my undergraduate studies I had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy. My educational experiences, along with my past career opportunities, have provided me with the knowledge and skill set necessary to take on my role as a School Psychologist.
     
    My chosen career path has been inspired by my belief that children have the opportunity to reach their highest potential. My experience working in various school settings, preschool, elementary, middle, and high school, afforded me the opportunity to develop skills and expand on personal attributes essential to the school psychology profession. I have a strong belief that a cohesive Child Study Team and collaboration between faculty and families is fundamental in promoting a positive school climate and culture, which ultimately results in academic achievement. I am looking forward to having a great school year with the Demarest team!
