I am excited to work with WVL students for the 3rd year, as well as our highly professional and caring staff. As a school psychologist, I am available to support students who may encounter a range of issues affecting their education. My experience includes 24 years as the school psychologist at Nicolet High School in suburban Milwaukee. Prior to Nicolet, I worked for the Waukesha School District serving Pre-K through 12th grade. Throughout my career, I have assisted students with disabilities as well as students who exhibit emotional needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me through email or phone, as I am available to support you and your children with any concerns where I might offer assistance.
I am proud to say that I have been teaching science to Wisconsin students for over 15 years. My goal is to make WVL the premier place for science education in my birthplace of Wisconsin.
My favorite books as a child were National Geographic Magazines.
I am an outdoorsman/explorer/adventurer and I have visited just about every state park/natural area in this great state as well as almost all 50 states in the USA. (Next stop: Alaska!)
Some of my favorite adventures include: hiking the Grand Canyon, helicoptering over Hawaii volcanoes, exploring ancient Mayan temples, witnessing NASA scientists test future Mars rovers, exploring the WW2 D-Day beaches of Normandy, and exploring shipwrecks in a submarine.
