I am a Maryland Psychology Associate working under the supervision of Dr. Clarke. Over the past five years, I have worked as a school administrator at a school for children who learn differently. Additionally, I have worked as a school psychologist for over twenty years and specialize in family/school relations. I am dedicated to helping children and families of children with disabilities reach their full potential.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. During this time, I gained valuable internship experiences in the school program of a residential mental health facility working with children and adolescents with significant emotional conditions as well as learning disorders. This experience led me down a path that fueled my passion for education and for treating children and families of individuals with academic and social-emotional challenges. In the years to come, I worked as a behavioral specialist and mobile therapist in the home and school environments providing wrap-around services while I earned my Masters of Education in Educational Psychology and my Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, I was able to continue my work providing services to school staff, families, and children with diverse needs in the public school system. I provided comprehensive mental health and behavioral health services and research-based practices for students, as well as parent and staff consultations. My scope of work included staff training, intern supervision, IEP and 504 team participation, conducting psychological assessments, risk and threat assessments, school based counseling, and program evaluations. I have participated in thousands of meetings analyzing data to best meet student needs. Always passionate about children and families of children with disabilities, my doctoral research focused on understanding sibling relationships and the impact of having a child in the home with a disability on personality, academics, behavior, and future career aspirations. I completed my Doctorate of Education degree in May 2009 from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and continued in the public sector as a school psychologist. In 2018, I became the Director of Program Supports at The Summit School, an independent, nonpublic school for bright students who learn differently. In this role, I help manage the departmental planning and daily operations of the school to ensure that each child receives the best educational program possible based on their unique learning profile and social-emotional needs. I am also a part of the evaluation team at the Summit Resource Center, a community outreach center, conducting comprehensive psychological assessments for individuals of all ages. My goal is to empower children and families and help them understand their abilities, skills, and challenges so they can be successful in the classroom and in life.
Life Outside the Office
Originally from south central Pennsylvania, my husband and I established roots in Maryland in 2002. Although we always thought we would return to PA, we have grown to love the mild winters, boating on the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland crabs, and the many attractions and charms that Maryland has to offer. We currently live in southern Maryland with our two teenage boys and german short-haired pointers.
Dr. Eget works in the Annapolis location and provides telehealth services. She is an out of network provider.
