• Welcome to my page. Now let me introduce myself…

    I am starting my 29th year of being a school social worker.  I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Master's of Social Work.  I have been very fortunate to work in District #63 for my entire career. 

    When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, baking, and gardening.

    What I most love about working as a social worker is the opportunity to help students grow and develop both socially and emotionally.

    Please feel free to contact me at any time.
