Who am I?

Hello everyone! I am very excited to be working with so many kiddos in this wonderful district. This is my first year in the field, and I am thrilled to be working at Maple Hill! Naugatuck is very similar to my hometown, and I feel right at home in this welcoming community. I am a certified School Psychologist through the State of Connecticut, and am nationally certified as well (NCSP). When I'm not in my office, I can be found at the beach, on a hike, or with my family!
 
As the School Psychologist, I am fortunate to be able to work with all of the students at Maple Hill. I have always enjoyed spending time with little ones, and find so much joy in working with them as they go through their school years. Being able to watch students grow and blossom into the best version of themselves makes every day worth it. I hope to inspire all children to go after their dreams and achieve big things! My goal is to help students become academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally successful in school and life. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about your child!
