 Hello, Eagles! I am so honored to be your Alpha Phonics/Dyslexia Therapist this year. My family and I have lived in Wylie since 2012. Both my son and my daughter are in Wylie schools- my son is at Harrison, and my daughter is a Bush Eagle with me! I received my undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary studies from UT Dallas in 2007, and my Masters in Special Education from Concordia University in 2017. In 2020, I completed my two year training to become a Dyslexia Therapist with Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. I am a Certified Academic Language Therapist and Licensed Dyslexia Therapist in the State of Texas. I began my career in education in 2008 teaching third grade, before moving to ESL. I am so happy to have made the choice to transition into the world of dyslexia. I have had some amazing students and families, and I can't wait to have more!

I enjoy listening to music, reading to/with my children and my students, and being outdoors. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
