I became an Educational Therapist/Professional (ET/P) after a successful career in accounting and finance where I learned about organization, time management and collaborating with groups on a project.  In my role as an ET, I help students reach their academic potential in a trusting and therapeutic environment.  I teach students to leverage their strengths and shore up their areas of challenge.
