I am thrilled to be joining Canyon Rim Academy to offer additional Social Emotional Learning (SEL) support and benefit wellness and Mental Health for all (especially during this trying time). I am passionate about helping students and teachers with skills development and building capacity for coping, resiliency, and compassion for one another. Whatever the situation or challenge a student is facing, it is important to provide a safe and inviting place to receive skilled help. My goal is to build confidence, creativity, and achievement for each child. Working together as a team of educators, parents, and staff, to address the whole child, students can continue to soar. I love working with children individually and in groups to enhance friendships, compassion and having fun while learning life long skills.
I bring to Canyon Rim Academy 30 years of experience working as a School Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I worked in Granite School District for the past 19 years in neighboring elementary schools prior to which I served in several capacities for 11 years with Valley Mental Health (Pingree School and ACES programs).
