Career & Education Experience
I grew up in and love Massachusetts. The lure of my family and all that Massachusetts has to offer brought me back after graduating from Trinity College in Hartford, CT. After a few years of work I returned to school and graduated from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work in 2001. While in school I worked at the Big Brother Association of Greater Boston and Catholic Charities, where I had the wonderful opportunity of taking the lead on a welfare reform study titled Children First.
I returned to graduate school in 2011 and earned my M.Ed in Organizational Development in August 2012 from Endicott College. It was a phenomenal program that emphasized emotional intelligence and navigating difficult conversations, both which has informed my mediation practice.
