I have worked with high school and college students for over 10 years. I was first a high school classroom teacher (biology, reading and English). I then became a curriculum specialist, working on academic plans, professional development and testing (This is where I got all my insights on tests, specifically the ACT/SAT). In 2011 I became an assistant principal at Estero High School (I was the hammer. My job was to keep students in line). I then became a college professor, which I continue to do today. At Edge Academic Solutions, I help young adults stretch beyond their comfort zones to achieve and exceed their goals.

My passion for literacy drove me into the classroom 10 years ago. Since then, I have served many different roles in public education including classroom teacher (English, Intensive Reading, and AVID), ESE case manager, AVID coordinator, teacher leader, and most recently, district secondary ELA coach. By working with students in educational and private settings, I have found that my strengths and passion lie in helping students overcome their perceived limitations and setting attainable yet challenging short-term and long-term goals. Through Edge Academic Solutions, I provide students additional and personalized support.
