I am a former middle school teacher, tutor/mentor of twice exceptional children, and provider of translation services for college students with declared disabiltiies.  Trained in both educational psychology (which focuses on learning from the outside in) and cognitive neuroscience (learning from the inside out - in 2E populations!), I am uniquely qualified to assist you. 

 

My history and current professional experiences span across education, clinical, and neuroscience environments on a daily basis.  

 

I am the first person with this specfic combination of training dedicated to understanding twice-exceptionality and to improving the educational process, talent development, and quality of life for twice-exceptional and high-ability children and can help situate you or your child into a productive educational experience and enhance your life with new knowledge.
