She has over 100 hours of professional development in gifted education.
Most recently, she has taught both graduate and undergraduate courses at Eastern University’s School of Education where her classes emphasized children who need special support in their learning, including key components of teaching gifted students. She has also worked as an Elementary Special Education Liaison for the West Chester Area School District, where she acted as a Local Education Agency (LEA) in meetings for students identified as special education and/or gifted learners. Her career prior to her LEA work also reflects her lifelong commitment to helping children with special educational needs. She worked as an early intervention specialist for children in the Philadelphia area. She has been part of a therapeutic support team for Central Montgomery County and has acted as a behavioral health worker in Flourtown, Pennsylvania.
