Nice to meet you! We are an experienced and close-knit team dedicated to providing high quality services to families and individuals throughout the Hudson Valley and Taconic regions. We would love to hear from you if you have any questions regarding specific services or supports. Feel free to contact one of us below.
I joined the Select Human Service’s team in 2015 after working in the field for over ten years and oversee the HCBS Waiver department. I have worked as a Recreation Specialist, a Program Coordinator for Respite Programs and as a Transition Specialist throughout various school districts. I have a BA in Psychology and a MS in Mental Health Counseling from Pace University. I also have my New York State School Counseling Certification from Long Island University. I currently oversee the daily operations of our Community Habilitation Services, At Home Respite Services and FSS Crisis Respite Services. I am humbled to be a part of this team and to help people with developmental disabilities live more independent lives in the comfort of their family homes.

In my role I supervise our field supervisor and train and mentor Case Managers and Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s) to dynamically provide supports grounded in the DSP Code of Ethics and the seven goals of the DSP Core Competencies.

I was given the privilege of working for Select Human Services in August of 2015. Although I have a BA degree from L.I.U., I have been working in the field of IT for over 20 years. I have extensive knowledge of computer programming as well as networking. I have worked as a database (FoxPro database) consultant, have also programmed in Visual Basic utilizing SQL Server as the backend database, and have provided oversight on multiple program management IT projects. I greatly enjoy working here and am looking forward to giving many years of service to this organization.
