My K-12 education was spread across 3 countries exposing me to many different curriculums and philosophies of education. I completed my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Pittsburgh where I majored in Neuroscience and Education. I hold a Master’s degree from Columbia University where I studied Developmental Psychology in Education with a primary focus on children’s development of mathematical thinking. 

Understanding the needs of the learning brain and using that understanding to inform educational practice is an area of special interest to me. In pursuing this interest, I have worked with the Learning Research and Development Center, where I learned about children’s misconceptions of scientific and mathematical concepts, with The Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project, where I was exposed to the most progressive methods on the teaching of reading and writing, and with The Kelter Center where I first began applying my understanding of the learning brain to the special needs population. 

I have over fifteen years experience working one-on-one with children of all ages in private practice. I am Chair of Research at The Association of Educational Therapists where my mission is to encourage educational practitioners to engage in academic research. My own scholarship is concerned with the ethical and social justice implications that arise at the intersection of brain science and education. I am also Faculty at the School of Education at Loyola Marymount University and at Pepperdine University's Department of Psychology and Education.  

While my education and years of experience have certainly prepared me for the work I do, I believe my success is due mostly to my ability to build respectful and trusting relationships with children.

When I’m not learning from my students, I spend my time writing.
