In her role as Director of Continuing Education at XceptionalED, she utilizes her talents as a highly organized and detail-oriented professional to support XceptionalED Leaders to create high quality continuing education courses for speech-language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists (OTs), psychologists, special education, social work, mental health, and applied behavior analysis (ABA) professionals.
