Her professional interests focus on Interdisciplinary Collaboration, Disability Studies, Early Childhood Special Education, Technology in Education, and Family-School Partnerships.
As a longtime Vermont resident, her investment in education and her local community began with her work in the Burlington schools as a parent, volunteer, and educator.
