I am a school psychologist, a wife, and a mother of two beautiful boys. My career started over 25 years ago as a counselor working with teenagers in residential settings. After moving to Wisconsin in 2008, I earned my Ed. S. and National Certification in School Psychology (NCSP). I have worked in Wisconsin as a school psychologist since 2011. Currently, I work part-time with the Ellsworth Community School District and part-time in my private practice. I especially enjoy my role as a school-based mental health provider and working with children and adolescents with complex trauma. Additionally, I am passionate about working closely with students, educators and families when an individual is struggling to learn to read. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the school psychologists in our state as WSPA President.
Rene worked in the Madison Metropolitan School District since 2013. She graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara’s doctoral psychology program. Rene works in a high school setting and enjoys the energy and challenge of working with adolescents. She am interested in school based programs that foster resiliency and collaboration with community partners.
