I joined the Tapestry Community in the 2011-2012 school year. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Special and Elementary Education from SUNY Geneseo. I spent 8 years teaching special education at the elementary and high school level in San Francisco, California. While teaching in California I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling from San Francisco State University. I moved back to Buffalo in 2007 and continued working in the special education field supporting Job Corps Centers’ disability programs. In 2011 an opportunity at Tapestry opened up for me to combine my school experience and my counseling experience. I love working with the students and families in the Buffalo community. Outside of school I love spending time outside and traveling to new places. I am always trying to gain a better understanding of our world and myself.
