Degrees and Certifications:
I received my degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University in 1992. I also have a degree in psychology and a post graduate certificate in early childhood mental health. The vast majority of my work experience is in early intervention and early childhood education where I provided services to children birth through five years of age. Some of my past experience includes being a regional trainer on social emotional learning in young children. I have worked as a special education coordinator where I supported the development of programs to address Autism, visual impairments. Deaf and hard of hearing and high quality early childhood preschool programs I have worked in District 6 for the past year and have very much enjoyed spending time in the classroom and learning from the outstanding teachers in this district. I love working with children and try to establish positive relationships with all children. I believe strongly in the idea that having strong social and emotional relationships is the foundation for all learning. In addition to my work in district 6, my wife and I have a private pediatric therapy practice in Fort Collins.
