I grew up in southern New Hampshire, where I also attended college, and then moved south to Boston shortly after graduation. I was given the opportunity to join the Beaver community in 2001 and have had the tremendous experience of working here, in various capacities, for the majority of my professional career. As the Director of Counseling Services and a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, I am deeply committed to my counseling and advocacy work with students, parents and faculty. I strive to help others develop skills and strategies to navigate their realities. Beyond my work at school, I continue to try to seek balance in my own life. From a family of athletes and sports fans, I am a former swimmer turned marathon runner. I value family, adventures, and good relationships; all things that nurture healthy personal and professional growth. I continue to grow here at Beaver and remain inspired by the people who share their stories with me with everyday.
