Thank you for visiting Connect and showing an interest in enhancing your home-life and your child’s development! I am dedicated to working with young children with all abilities and their families and hope to share my passion with you.

  • I hold a master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education from The University of Florida. 

  • I am a certified Infant Toddler Developmental Specialist.

  • I have spent the past 10 years working with young children and families in a variety of capacities including time as a ESE classroom teacher, an educational diagnostician and an early interventionist.
