I attended the University of Wisconsin and The New School, graduating with a degree in Social and Historical Inquiry. I then attended University of Maryland School of Social Work where I got my MSW. I am currently a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Maryland.

I grew up in Chevy Chase, attending Westland Middle School and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Working at McLean is particularly meaningful to me as it allows me to work within the same school community I felt a part of as a student. I love music and sports. I am partial to soul music, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Michigan Wolverines. Most of our students learn my sports allegiances within a few days of getting to know me.
