Prior to joining Menlo, I taught Kindergarten for a number of years. It was during this time I found my love for teaching and passion for creating healthy learning environments that fosters life long learners. I have experience counseling at the elementary and middle school level. While I love working with all age groups, I was drawn to middle school as it is a time of immense change socially, academically and developmentally for our students. Having a support system to advocate for them is vital in maximizing their well-being.

When I am not at Menlo, you can find me perusing the aisles of Trader Joes, spending time with my golden doodles and traveling - whether that be quick trips to the beach, or visiting my family in Ireland!
