I am the Supervisor for the ACCESS program.  I am entering my fourth year with TSD!  Before arriving to TSD, I was in Phoenix as a Transition Specialist for Phoenix Day School for the Deaf for 6 years as well as an instructional aide for 4 years for the same site.
I received my B.A. degree in Integrative Studies with a minor in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. Then I received my M.S. in Deaf Education from Idaho State University.  
I am from Illinois (graduated from Illinois School for the Deaf) and have lived in multiple places:  Illinois (Chicago area), Texas (El Paso and Austin), Utah (Sandy), New York (Rochester) and Arizona (Phoenix).  I foresee that I will be staying put in Austin for a very long time.
During my spare time, I love spending time with my family traveling, doing water nature activities and just being a family!
