I was born and raised in Chicagoland. After growing up with four siblings, I find I am continually drawn to environments with lots of activity and energy. I realized that I deeply enjoy working with children during my three years as a mental health counselor at Presence Saint Elizabeth Hospital on the west side of Chicago. My previous clinical work focused on treating children and adolescents admitted to the hospital for inpatient treatment. My time there was filled with the challenges and joys of working on a team to support children’s health and wellness in every area of development. Children grow and change so quickly, and I find it invigorating to work with them on their journeys.
It is a privilege to be part of the staff at British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park. I am excited to continue learning from the students, families, teachers, and administrators here.
