As part of the Health & Wellness team I support students’ emotional wellness in my role as a school counselor. Ms. Potee and I also coordinate the student-run ProjectConnect program and facilitate workshops for our faculty regarding mental health. I completed my clinical training at the Campus School of Smith College in Northampton, Project Coach in Springfield, and the Central Western Massachusetts VA Medical Center in Leeds. Prior to that I worked in a variety of school and community settings including the Federation for Children with Special Needs in Boston, the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization in Portland (OR), Lesley University’s Threshold Program in Cambridge, and Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown. Additionally, I am a MA Board of Social Workers licensed certified social worker (LCSW).
