In the beginning of my career, my “why” was to advocate for vulnerable populations. I became a school psychologist because I wanted all children with disabilities to have equitable access to a free and appropriate public education. Today, my “why” is so much more than that! In my experiences with students, staff, and families, I have built a passion for strengths-based approaches to diverse abilities and cultures. I believe in educating families on their rights, and being a proponent for IDEA, ADA, and state law as it pertains to schools. Additionally, as the parent of a child with a disability, I know what it feels like to be on the “other side of the table.” This personal experience has enlightened the ways in which I perform my own job duties as a school psychologist with regard to team collaboration, communication, and sensitivity.

Is a hot dog a sandwich?
- No. The definition of sandwich as provided by Oxford Languages Dictionary is, "an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them, eaten as a light meal." While a typical American-Style hot dog contains meat, cheese, and other fillings, the bun is most frequently a single piece of bread, and therefore does not meet said sandwich criteria.
