|Position:||School Social Worker|
I am so excited and grateful to join the Sanborn Suns this school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you'd like to learn more about supports available to your student(s) or have questions/concerns I can address. I look forward to working with you!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University in 2012. I received my master's degree in Social Work from the University of New England in 2017. I hold an Associate License through the Arizona Board of Behavior Health and a School Social Work Certificate with Arizona Department of Education. I have previous experience working with children in residential care as well as providing counseling to children and families in the behavior health field. In 2018 I began with Chandler Unified School District as a school social worker.
My Educational Philosophy
Our students succeed when they feel safe and valued in their environment, and I hope to continue to foster this culture here at Sanborn. I believe each student deserves to be seen, heard, and accepted in the fullness of who they are. My person-centered approach emphasizes building positive and trusting relationships with students and families. I also utilize a trauma informed lens to bridge gaps and minimize barriers impacting our students' success. With attention towards social emotional skills and mental wellness, students can leave Sanborn as well-rounded humans, capable of navigating whatever comes next!
