My Background

Passionate About Inspiring Others

I'm an advocate for gifted individuals and their families. My years in education have taught me that while academically gifted students share many of the same learning traits, they all possess unique variations in their strengths and areas of relative weaknesses and present a host of educational issues that must be addressed.

My passion for and experience with academically gifted students combined with my unique skills as a presenter allow me to reach out to educators and families of gifted individuals to inform, inspire and empower them to help all gifted students reach their potential. I can provide training sessions, consult on educational programming for school districts and for an individual, as well as work with gifted students themselves. Please contact me about your needs. I would love to have the opportunity to consult with you.
