I joined the SHWC staff in August 2007. I have worked as a Child Life Specialist at Johns Hopkins Hospital and bookkeeper for my husband’s counseling practice. We have four children and I love to play tennis, travel, go for walks, spend time with family and friends, and am a big Steelers fan!   Please contact me if you are a graduate student or postdoc with any questions about pre-entrance health requirements.
