I am the School Psychologist at Palos South and this is my sixth year working in District 118. I have been working as a School Psychologist for ten years. I received both my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and my Master of Arts degree in School Psychology from Governors State University.
Some of my responsibilities at Palos South include coordinating individual case study evaluations. I also set up and participate in all of the IEP meetings at South. I provide individual and/or group counseling to both regular education and special education students. I collaborate with teachers, administration and parents concerning academic, social and emotional needs of students. I am part of the PBIS team and the RTI team at Palos South. I also co-sponsor the Cardinal Pacesetter program and the Snowflake program. 
The Cardinal Pacesetter program has eighth grade students serve as sixth grade connection leaders in which they teach lessons about issues impacting Palos South Students. The Pacesetters act as role models to the younger students at Palos South.

The Snowflake program is offered to both seventh and eighth grade students. It is typically held on an evening in January/February. The night is filled with activities and motivational speakers aimed at building self-confidence and helping students make responsible choices.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. Most of my weekends are spent in a gym or at a baseball field with my two children.
Palos South is a great school and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. I can be reached at Palos South everyday with questions or concerns.
