K-12 INTERVENTION and Professional Development Specialist, Speaker, and Author.

I lead professional developments in BRAIN-Based, HEART-Based, PBIS and ACEs trainings on HIDDEN Student Trauma.

  • I’m a National Board Certified English teacher who taught for 14 years in continuation and general education high schools in the Bay Area. I also taught graduate courses for Loyola Marymount University and Touro University.  From years of classroom experience working with students in crises, I’ve developed a specialty for uncovering and addressing hidden student trauma. I inspire school staff to bravely own their talents and vulnerabilities so that students get the social emotional support that they need. 


  • I am a Martha Beck trained Life Coach.


  • I’m also the mother of a lively 3 year old and a baby.
