Growing up, going to school, and teaching in Atlanta has offered me a unique perspective of the educational opportunities in the area. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in psychology as well as an Early Childhood Education Certificate from Agnes Scott College and a Master of Education in Learning Disabilities from Brenau University. I began my career in education as a classroom teacher, and after almost ten years in the classroom, I began to focus on working with students with learning differences moving into a learning specialist role. I have taught and supported students in both public and private educational settings, from 3-K to twelfth grade. I have also worked with young adults, who suffered strokes, helping them regain their reading skills. Most recently, prior to joining Kramer and Montiel Psychology, I was the Head of Learning Support at an Atlanta private school, where I led the learning support teachers and served on the leadership team. I enjoy working with students to help them discover and understand who they are as a learner. My love of reading, and belief that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to read, led to co-founding a nonprofit that builds libraries in Nicaragua. Spending time with my husband, four children, three dogs, and chickens, keeps me busy when I am not working with students.
