  • About Me

    • I am part of the Teaching, Learning & Sciences (TLS) department and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Early Childhood Special Education and Child, Family & School Psychology programs. I have a Master's in Early Childhood Special Education from Southern Illinois University and received my  PhD from the University of Denver in the Child, Family & School Psychology program.

      I have served as a teacher, advocate, and interventionist for very young children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families across Colorado. I worked on the Early Childhood Team in the Lieutenant Governor’s office under Dr. Barbara O’Brien and worked for Head Start as the Disabilities and Mental Health Coordinator, Adams County Five Star Schools, Fisher Early Learning Center, and Denver Public Schools. I consult with school districts across Colorado and other states on the Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment and Intervention process. My research interests include families with children with neurodevelopmental disorders, assessments methods for young children, and working with families going through the early intervention/special education processes. I enjoy spending time with her family, traveling, reading, and watching old movies.
