Travel is my passion! But my favorite journey has been for almost 10 years now in the land of dyslexia. Teaching kids and managing early childhood centers for almost 20 years allowed me to have a rich depth of knowledge when I founded NOCO Dyslexia Center. Some of the skills I have gained are the following:

  • Worked directly with Susan Barton, learning from the master!

  • Met with and learned from neuroscientists at Harvard

  • Monitored interventions with over 300 students

  • Assessing over 500 students

  • Trained over 50 staff

  • Taught at a local college

  • Present to different community groups

  • Acted as an advisor for a new charter school opening in town

  • Worked on initiative to tutor dyslexic individuals at the county jail

  • Researched the topic of dyslexic shame and how to remediate those effects for my master's thesis
