This is my first year at Patterson Elementary, and I am so excited to be part of the Panther family! I have practiced social work for over 8 years, working in both California and Illinois. I hold a Master Social Work (MSW) degree, with my area of specialty being school social work, having received my Type 73 School Social Work Certification in Illinois.
I am passionate about being a social worker and I believe strongly in the resiliency of the human spirit. I am a strengths based, solutions focused practitioner. I see the intrinsic value of each student on this campus and feel privileged to be a part of their day.
My family and I are new to the state of Arizona, having moved here this past June, and I absolutely love it! I am married and have 2 amazing children of my own. I love being outdoors, running, hiking, fitness and exercise.
