A little about me:
Since 2002, I have been the Transition Coordinator here at River Dell, working with special education students on their transition to life after high school. My role involved career counseling, college planning, self-advocacy skill development and providing support to students and families throughout the process. During that time, I worked closely with the Child Study Team and provided support to students on their caseload. Now, as a case manager and member of the Child Study Team myself, I work directly with students and families throughout the special education process and communicate with teachers, related service providers, families, outside providers and students each day.
My education includes a Bachelors Degree from Stonehill College in Massachusetts, a Masters in Social Work degree from Columbia University, and a Graduate Certificate in Transition Special Education from George Washington University. Prior to working at River Dell, my career included case management, program development and counseling positions in NY city and Long Island.
