Fun fact about me 

I have been dancing since the age of 3.

I love working with children and their families because 
Children and adolescents are so resilient! Working with youth is an enriching experience that allows me to be creative and flexible in my work. Importantly, early interventions have the potential to make a significant impact on later outcomes in life.
