Hello Jaguar Family,

I am honored to serve as your child's School Social Worker for the 22-23’ school year. This is my 4th academic year as a Hazelwood School District Social Worker. School Social Workers provide a wide variety of services to meet children's academic, social, and emotional needs. I serve as an advocate for all students by putting supports in place to help them reach their highest potential!

Over the past 16+ years, I have been devoted to social justice in the areas of early childhood, education, juvenile justice, community relations, child welfare, and pediatric/adult medical practice. I have exceptional experience in working with children and adults seeking preventative and crisis-related services due to economic hardships, mental illness, behavioral health, domestic violence, and substance abuse.

I am a proud graduate of Hazelwood Central High School! I am an Alumna of Saint Louis University, Columbia College, and the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou). I have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.S.W in Social Work. I am also licensed as a LMSW & trained in EMDR psychotherapy. 

I specialize in assisting individuals cope with depression, anxiety, school stress, peer conflict, life transitions, and adoption/foster care. It is my commitment to ensure that your child has a successful school year!
