I am a Licensed Social Worker in the state of New Jersey, with 17 years of experience in the school system working with children. I have provided counseling, social skills, behavior support, character education, college and career readiness, and bully prevention. In addition to working with children, I have provided parent education and support in a multitude of settings for the past 20 years.
Prior to moving to New Jersey, I worked at the Queens Family Court with children and adolescents providing crisis intervention and counseling. I was also a supervisor in the Queens Family Court system and was the Court Liaison, advocating for youth and family services. I have also worked for the Queensborough Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (QSPCC) in Queens, NY. I proudly served our country in the Army Reserve for 6 years.
The TAKE 2 program teaches children and families the skills needed to create a positive and safe environment. As the parent of a high level athlete, I have witnessed firsthand the need for guidance in assisting children and adolescents to fulfill their dreams. As the TAKE 2 Coach, I provide a positive perspective to those facing struggles and challenges.
In addition to coaching, I also provide trainings and presentations to athletic facilities and gym owners. I have worked with Lucas Sports, INC. nationwide, speaking about the mental strength of athletes as well as the importance of finding a balance with family and the sport. I am a compassionate coach who brings years of experience to educate and guide all those with whom I work.
