I have been very fortunate with my job as a certified speech language pathologist. I have met and worked with many wonderful people that have given me the skills and the abilities that I possess today. I really love the work that I do, specifically helping children and their families. My current position is being on the assistive technology team at Westchester Institute for Human Development in Valhalla, NY.
I have always had a passion for creating books and games since I was a child. Since then, I have published three children’s books and an e-book. My first book that I wrote with Mindy Winebrenner and illustrated by Yuki Osada is titled The Monkey Balloon. I recently published a book that will be released April 2018 titled My Second Year of Kindergarten. My third book, A Tale of The Monkey Balloon, is a sequel to The Monkey Balloon and will be published December 2017.
I started creating my own games since my first job out of graduate school and haven’t stopped since. Since 2004, I have been working with Super Duper Publications on various projects and have been lucky to have co-authored two games and one workbook. My first game that I helped create and co author is called Webber Functional Communication Games by Super Duper Publications. My second and most recent game is Cool in School by Super Duper Publications. The workbook that I created and co authored is called Webber Storytime Communication Boards by Super Duper Publications. Being a part of these projects has been such a positive experience and has motivated me personally and in my career.
My certifications include being PROMPT certified and being a Certified Autism Specialist.
