I began teaching in 1982, acquiring a rich background in a variety of reading, writing and math methods.

In 1999, I read The Gift of Dyslexia by Ronald D. Davis and was instantly intrigued. It was so different from the usual approaches to dyslexia that I thought, this man is either brilliant or crazy! It became clear that the answer is…brilliant. The book accurately described some clients who had puzzled me over the years. It explained the boy who was a brilliant chess and science whiz yet skipped or changed almost every little word. “The” was his greatest enemy. I knew those kids and adults needed different keys to unlock the treasure chest of learning. It quickly became clear to me that Davis® programs provide those keys.

I was trained by Ron Davis and licensed in 2001. Several years later, I became licensed in the Davis Autism Approach and Davis Concepts for Life programs. The Davis Programs’ innovative approaches enable neurodiverse individuals to harness their unique ways of thinking to overcome their challenges. And we have fun too!

As a licensed Davis® facilitator, I have helped hundreds of people of all ages get to the root of their difficulties and recognize and nurture their gifts. I have worked with clients on Zoom, in my office, at their homes, and also traveled to help clients throughout the Midwest and in New York, California, Iceland, and other places around the world.

When I’m not working, you might find me having all sorts of adventures at home, in the city, and in the countryside. Birdwatching, biking, hiking, kayaking, music, and reading are some of my passions.

I have served on the Advisory Board of Say Ah!, a nonprofit health literacy organization and am a former board member of the Chicago Ornithological Society.
