I have a unique perspective when advising and supporting the parents. As an attorney with over 20 years in practice, I have experience litigating disability-related cases and advising parents on special education matters. As a trainer for the Federation for Children with Special Needs, I regularly interact with parents and caregivers of children throughout the state with an array of concerns, issues, and experiences, and have a true sense of the range of possibilities and potential pitfalls. As a mother of children with disabilities, I have firsthand knowledge of how challenging and overwhelming it can be to prioritize and allocate time and resources to effectively support your child, both in and out of school.


I am mom to a daughter in high school, a son in elementary school, and 2 rescue dogs.


I am a member of the Special Needs Advocacy Network, the Sudbury League of Women Voters and the Sudbury Educational Resource Fund. I am also a former board member of Sudbury Special Education Parent Advisory Council, Peter Noyes Parent Teacher Organization and Curtis Parent Organization.


I enjoy the physical challenge and mental balance that comes from practicing Martial Arts and Yoga. I also enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and dogs.
