Hola! I’ve been a school psychologist for Arlington for 18 years and at Claremont ever since I started. I also support students at Arlington Community High School (ACHS), which is a cool program for anyone of any age seeking their high school diploma. Additionally, I get to travel the county and work with students through our Multilingual Assessment Team. I attended James Madison University for undergraduate and grad school. I enjoy most types of music, basketball, and LEGO. You may see me DJing our school events from time to time.

Hello and hola! My name is Elizabeth and I am excited to be working part-time in a dual-language immersion school. I am a school counselor coming from Nelson County (just outside Charlottesville) and am new to the area. I enjoy yoga, cooking, and horseback riding. For my undergraduate degree, I went to Wake Forest University and received my Masters in Counselor Education from the University of Virginia. Go Hoo’s!

Hello! I am delighted to be working with the exceptional staff and families here at Claremont. I am very excited to learn more from our community and continue working on my Español! As a “military brat,” I spent much of my childhood moving and attending schools across the country- and ocean! Fortunately, we moved to Arlington and I was able to attend and graduate high school in APS. I received a B.S. in Psychology from William & Mary and completed my Master’s degree locally at Marymount University. During my free time, I love working in my garden and spending time out in nature with my husband and our dogs, Clover and Bruce.
