Virtual Early Intervention and Parent Coaching Services are my passion!

I began my journey into the world of Deaf Education at Washington University in St. Louis, where I focused my research on the efficacy of virtual services in Early Intervention. I became a parent educator at Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) after earning my Masters Degree. It was there that I discovered virtual learning to be such an incredible tool to reach students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and their families across the state. I had the pleasure of creating CID’s tele-intervention program to reach families that lived in rural districts, with teacher shortages. 
After a few wonderful years, I wanted to combine my love of travel and my love of Deaf Education, so I volunteered for the United States Peace Corps. One year in eSwatini, Africa further solidified my passion for working in this field, which led me to extend my stay for an extra trimester. During my time in eSwatini, I focused on helping the students understand their hearing levels and obtain updated audiograms, while supporting local teacher’s with strategies for educating the students.
Upon my return to the states, I landed a job as an Itinerant Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing, which thrust me into the world of public education for the first time. Currently, I contract with two Florida school districts virtually, so I have a unique understanding of what it takes to be a successful virtual Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing.
