I am a proud graduate of Grambling State University and Nova Southeastern University with a Masters in Educational leadership. I am a certified Special Education Teacher with over 20 years of experience in education, from general to special education. I have been on both sides of the table as a parent of a student with a disability, teacher, charter school administrator, Pre k – Administrator, school level administrator, district level administrator, and regional administrator in the seventh largest School District in the United States.
Prior to being an educator, I was a Retirement Relationship Manager for a fortune 500 company. I understand the financial impact of having a child with a disability. I heard the call to become a civil servant in education and accepted the challenge. I pride myself in bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. I have successfully facilitated over 5000 meetings, including manifestations, legal collaboration, resolutions, Office for Civil Rights, State Complaints, and mediations. I have had to advocate for my own child’s rights and strategically won the battle. When it comes to protecting your rights, I am your educational consultant and will advocate on what's best for your child. I have worked with military families and understand the military family and child. I am a member of The Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, The Military Child Education Coalition, and an affiliate member of the Hillsborough County Bar Association.
I am well-versed in due process. I bring expertise and a solid track record to every case to mediate and resolve matters proactively. If you have had the traumatic experience of having a disciplinary consequence given to your child and feel that their disability was not considered, or rights were violated I won’t hesitate to consult with you on a resolution and advocate via appeal. I have a background in both compliance and curriculum.
My effective strategies lead to positive outcomes to move you child forward. Don't navigate the complexities of education alone. I am passionate, a trendsetter, highly qualified, recognized nationwide, and believe in creating your own table based on the needs of your child. Partner with me for expert guidance and support.
Do you feel they won the battle? Call me we WILL STRATEGICALLY WIN the war.
I simply ask that you believe that Strategy is KEY!
