My career has always focused on helping children and adults with learning difficulties gain skills, services and confidence. I am also an experienced provider of educational, advising, and consulting services to private clients, including adult learners and college students.
At Wheelock College, I managed a caseload of 150-240 students receiving academic, dining, and housing accommodations; provided academic coaching and assistive technology; and advised staff and college departments on compliance and accessibility. I also served as a coach and mentor to students who were on academic probation, helping them gain the skills they needed to stay in school. I won a grant award for innovation in using technology to improve learning.
At Massachusetts College of Art and Design, I coached students with and without disabilities on learning strategies and consulted with staff on how to accommodate all kinds of learners.
I earned a Master’s Degree in teaching students with disabilities at Northeastern University, and additional licensure in teaching history. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in fine arts (emphasis in painting) from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
