Hello, I’m Abby! I am a school psychologist from Orlando, Florida. I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Educational Specialist’s (Ed.S) degree in School Psychology from the University of Central Florida. I am also a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT).
I worked in Seminole county, Florida for five years, serving students of varying abilities in pre-kindergarten through high school. In my third year as a school psychologist, I worked on the Behavior and Curriculum Support Team, where I served over thirty schools to support students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, develop behavior intervention plans, and help improve students’ academic, social, and emotional skills. In 2022, I became a trainer for a national crisis intervention program called UKERU, which offers trauma-informed alternatives to restraint when a child is in crisis. I also helped develop an Intervention Support Team within Seminole county to train teachers, administrators, social workers, school psychologists, guidance counselors, and behavior specialists on trauma-informed practices in the classroom. More recently, I have joined Hartmann and Hannan Center for Psychoeducational and Behavioral services, where I conduct psychoeducational evaluations, consult with parents and families, implement behavior management plans, and conduct Social Emotional Learning (SEL) groups.
Because I have worked in a multitude of settings, including hospitals, group homes, public schools, as well as private practice, I have served individuals of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, ability levels, and socioeconomic status.
I specialize in: psychoeducational evaluations, behavior intervention development and training, social emotional learning, and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
I am from the United States and I speak English.
