Meet Our Team
Consulting ManagerGreetings! Many of you already know me from my time serving as DeafConnect's Executive Director (January 2011–June 2016). I am currently serving as Consulting Manager (a contract position) for a short time until a new Director is hired and the transition made.
My educational background includes both a B.A. in Piano and a M.S. in Counseling from the University of Memphis. Additionally, I was fortunate to receive a fellowship to the National Leadership Training Program (for individuals working in the field of deafness) at California State University, Northridge where I completed a M.Ed.
While I have no family members who are deaf, I was introduced into deafness at Tennessee School for the Deaf as the School Guidance Counselor (1973–1975). That work continued at White Station High School as Lead Teacher and Counselor for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students (1980/81 –2010).
It has been a blessing and my pleasure to be involved and associated with the Deaf community. It is something that I truly treasure. Blessings to each one of you.
