***11/2018 Relocated to Springfield, MA. As a certified special education paraprofessional I have worked with children who are severely disabled with both mental and physical impairments. I take great pride in being able to bring some level of normalcy to their life. In my personal and professional life I am a child advocate. My additional training in yoga, meditation and mindfulness keeps me grounded and always in a positive state of mind. I also use it with my students and clients to help those that suffer from anxiety. As a mother myself I believe in fostering a nurturing and loving environment that will allow for the child to develop, grow and succeed.
