My Background

In over 20 years working with individuals who have learning differences, I have experienced a wide range of opportunities to help others, and from this I’ve found my focus in helping people with challenges in organizing their lives, maintaining social connections, and finding and keeping rewarding employment.

I coach individuals either in person or on the phone, to help them overcome the obstacles and challenges that may interfere or prevent them from achieving a satisfying, productive life.

From 1980-2003, I was the Director of Health Services at Curry College, a small private college specializing in teaching students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and non-verbal learning disability.  While at Curry, I was involved in counseling, health education, and community service.

I have led socially orientated groups and team meetings to support students with learning differences, both in summer camps for all ages and in middle schools.  My experience also includes participating in client and family interviews, volunteering at social activities, fundraisers, and community outreach events.

I have a BS degree and RN License from the State University of Binghamton, New York.  My continuing education includes numerous workshops and lectures on NLD, autism spectrum disorders, AD/HD, and mental health.

I am a long-time resident of Massachusetts. In my spare time, I enjoy long walks, concerts, films and gardening.
