• Welcome to my page, now let me introduce myself…

    I am starting my 27th year of being a school social worker.  I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Masters in Social Work.  I have been very fortunate to work at District #63 for my entire career. 

    When I am not at Gemini I enjoying spending time with my family, shopping, gardening, and reading.

    My goal for my students is for them to gain tools and knowledge for them to better manage their emotions and effectively problem-solve, and make good decisions about their lives.

    Please feel free to contact me at any time.
