    Transition Coordinator


    Office Hours: 7:30-9:30 a.m.               

    Mobile: By request, if needed


    In Chester Pennsylvania I was born and raised...on the playgrounds of Toby Farms Elementary, Fredrick Douglass Middle and Chester High School is where I spent my formative days. A proud member of the Class of 1983, we live by the words "Knowledge is the Key to Unity!" 

    As a native of Chester, I am honored to render service in the community that helped to shape me into who I am today. My professional title is Transition Coordinator, however, my mission speaks directly to my calling which is to transform my community one person at a time. My career with the Chester Upland School District began over twenty years ago as a Job Coach, and through the years I've served in various positions which prepared me for the challenge of Transition Coordinator. We are "Bridging the Gap to Successful Post Secondary Pathways." As we partner with families to support educational goals, college and career awareness, as well as meaningful transition plans driven by student's abilities, aptitude and interest we will turn the tide in our community! 

    Together we can conquer this new normal territory! My office hours are listed, however, if you need assistance please feel free to email me anytime, and I will respond as soon as possible. Our students' success is my priority.


    "WE are in this TOGETHER!"

    "What Chester Makes, Makes Chester"
