Location: New Jersey
College: Nova Southeastern University (graduate degree)
Profession: Learning specialist
Biography: I struggled in school during a time when not much was known about learning disabilities, let alone NVLD. Life was hard, but I learned through all my struggles and perseverance. Getting through college was no easy feat, but I never quit and graduated with honors. Determined to make a difference I became a public- school special education teacher to help misunderstood students. After 8 years, I left to start my own practice working with parents, children, and adults to learn academics and social skills. Working with individuals with neurodiversities is not just a job to me, it’s my life and passion.
What is your most treasured possession? I have two. My undergraduate and graduate college degree certificates, after I was told I wasn’t college material by my high school guidance counselor. My award from South Jersey Magazine for being one of the top ‘Super Women’ for making a difference in the community.
