My Story

Ever since I can remember, I have always been passionate about children and helping others. I began babysitting at a young age, knowing I wanted to pursue a career supporting children and their families. It was two summers during college working as as a camp counselor for children in need emotionally, developmentally, and in tense familial relationships that solidified my desire to earn my MSW with a specialization in children and families. Our early years are vitally important and I am passionate about helping children learn and grow as they experience and make sense of the world around them.

My Blue Bird Day

I am thrilled to join Blue Bird Day and collaborate with the multi-disciplinary team of professionals to provide holistic care to each child and his/her family. I look forward to working with a talented, passionate, and supportive team, along with each family, to help each child grow and achieve his/her goals in a variety of areas of development.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. To earn my LSW followed by my LCSW.
  2. I am eager to continue my education in DIR Floortime, ASD, child development, and sensory integration while also learning various approaches and practices from the multi-disciplinary team.
