As a doctoral student in the School Psychology program at USM, I am driven by a strong passion and curiosity about the art and science of teaching and learning. I am committed to defining an expertise that helps all kinds of learners to be successful, both in and out of academic settings. I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) in Elementary Education and spent the years following as lead preschool teacher for a small nonprofit childcare center in Carrabassett Valley, ME. In addition, I have served as the Student Representative from USM to the Maine Psychological Association (MePA) from 2012-2014 and began as the Student Representative to the Maine Association of School Psychologists (MASP) and Membership Chair and Secretary to the Maine Chapter of the Student Association of School Psychologists (MaineSASP) in 2014. I am excited about my role working with the Title III grant as we work to make our university a better place for faulty, students, and staff. Feel free to ask if you think there is something I may be able to help you with.
