My Experience

I began my work at the community college level helping students with disabilities navigate social and academic norms. Upon graduating from CSUSB in 2008, I became a substitute teacher where I subbed long-term for high school and middle school Special Day Class programs (SDCs). 

 

I was then hired to teach in an SDC at the K-5 level while pursuing my Master’s in Special Education with an emphasis on Autism Spectrum Disorder and both mild/moderate and moderate/severe credentials from Chapman University. I spent the next thirteen years working with various students with mild to severe disabilities in the capacity of Education Specialist for SDC and Resource programs.

 

I am earned my Master’s in College Counseling at University of Redlands in 2022 and have moved back into the college sector. I work in multiple private colleges serving as an adjunct professor where I teach about neurodivergent students to prospective teachers, in addition to my role as Accessibility Services Coordinator. 

 

Consultation consists of virtual interactions to explain the IEP process, prepare you for IEP meetings, and provide feedback on draft IEPs as a whole. Services also include reviewing audio-recorded IEP meetings, drafting IEP goals, analyzing data, and interpreting school-based reports. Ultimately, my aim is to support you and your child through this journey and to ensure their educational rights are being met. I can’t wait to be a part of your child’s educational success!

My rate is $125 per hour.
