I’ve been working with people with special needs for nearly 20 years, ranging in ages from 3 to 65 (including all grades from K-12). I was a recreation therapist at a residential treatment center for 5 years before going back to school to get my masters in special education and have worked as a special education teacher for nearly 10 years. In that time I also worked as a behavior specialist at a charter school in SLC. My passion is helping students make long term gains and build self-confidence.
On a personal note, I grew up and went to college in the New England area then moved out to Utah where I met my husband and had our 5 children, two of which are twins. I am excited to be joining the Ascent team.
