I then worked on the Child Study Team as an LDT/C completing educational assessments and planning programs for students with special needs. From there I obtained my Supervisor certificate which enabled me to secure a position as a Supervisor for Special Education in Parsippany Troy Hills School District. Finally, I obtained my Principal/Directors certification and began working in my current position as the Director of Special Education.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hiking, reading and crocheting.
What is the most valuable experience you think you can share with someone?
I think my experiences in building relationships in the workplace has helped me to successfully navigate my career in the direction that I wanted it to go. Identifying what I am passionate about and using that to build my career path is a story that I can share to help motivate students. Specifically, being in the field of education for 25+ years will allow me to offer much insight into a variety of different positions.
