I am very appreciative to be part of the Wisconsin RtI Center as a Regional Technical Assistance Coordinator. I support PBIS efforts for the Northern Region, which includes CESAs 8, 9, & 12. I have been in this role since 2009; previous to that, I supported the use of positive behavior interventions and supports across the state as a behavioral specialist, and was a teacher for students with Emotional-Behavioral Disabilities. In addition to my role as a PBIS Coordinator, I am also a local Special Education Director, support the Tier 3 work group, train at all levels, and work on the WI DPI work group supporting Trauma Sensitive Schools
I live in the Minocqua area and have four wonderful children! In my “free” time, I enjoy being involved in community organizations that support youth, travelling to warm destinations, and enjoying the beautiful Northern WI outdoors.
I look forward to collaborating with you and creating culturally responsive levels of supports that are effective for our kids, schools, and communities! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I may be of assistance in any way!
