Contact Faculty

After 20 years in the fields of mental health and education I love working with community college students as much now as when I first started! I enjoy the diversity of the population and the variety of experiences that each student brings to the college community. I feel honored to be a part of the process in which students start here to set new goals and work to achieve something that gives new value to their lives. And living in Downingtown, I love that I get to contribute to my own community by working at the Downingtown Campus.

Academic Biography

I majored in Psychology and Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh where I earned a Bachelors degree. I earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Immaculata University. I have 45+ credits in post-graduate coursework from West Chester University and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am truly a lifelong learner!

Theoretical Approach, Experience, and Temperament

Every student is unique and has a story to tell. Rather than use one approach I meet the students wherever they are in the process of self discovery and self determination. Because our students are so diverse in their background and goals I assess each students needs as we meet and determine a best approach to problem solving as we work together.
