A little bit about me....
My Bachelor’s degree is in Communication Sciences & Disorders from Nazareth College (2009). I worked for 3 years at Upstate Cerebral Palsy (Utica, NY) as a Speech Therapist for pre-schoolers with speech-language disorders. After this, I started the graduate program at Syracuse University for Social Work. My first internship was at the Syracuse City Schools, interning as a school social worker for grades 5-8. My second internship was at Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare, providing outpatient substance abuse treatment. For the past 2 ½ years, I have been working at the Kelberman Center (Utica, NY) providing outpatient individual, family and group therapy to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other co-existing mental health diagnoses including but not limited to ADHD, anxiety, depression and OCD.
I was born and raised in Syracuse and have been in the Utica area for the past few years. I am back in Syracuse often to see family, friends and my dogs! I like to travel and try to do this as often as I can. I enjoy swimming, reading, yoga and creating things from Pinterest!
