About Me


After receiving my M.A. in Orientation & Mobility from Western Michigan University, I spent 6 years teaching O&M to students ages 3-21 in the Washington, DC metro area. Following my time in DC I accepted a position in South Carolina where I established the first district-wide O&M Program for Horry County Schools to supplement its existing Vision Program for students with blindness.

I relocated to Seattle in 2010, spending 5 years with Seattle Public Schools, both as Team Leader for Vision Services and O&M Specialist.  I now contract out my services to other school districts in the Puget Sound Region, providing direct services in the area of O&M, assessments as needed, & compensatory services to students during the summer.

I’ve been an active member of AER for over 10 years, holding board member positions with both the Washington, DC/Maryland chapter of AER, as well as the Pacific Northwest AER chapter in Washington State.  I’ve held my ACVREP certificate since 2004 & also have also become a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) as an Exception Needs Specialist in the area of visual impairment.




Contact Information

I provide direct & consultative O&M services to students throughout the school year & summer months as needed.  I also collaborate with school districts & other agencies to complete O&M assessments & night-time travel evaluations if necessary, as part of students’ individual transition plans.  I welcome the opportunity to work with you & your students!
