New Orleans Therapeutic Day Program
Executive Director
New Orleans, LA
As the founding Executive Director of the New Orleans Therapeutic Day Program (NOTDP), I am responsible for the design, launch, and day to day operations of NOTDP, a joint collaboration among the Recovery School District, Orleans Parish School Board, and Tulane Medical School’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. NOTDP is a separate setting serving RSD and OPSB students in grades K-8 with the most severe diagnosed behavioral health disabilities. NOTDP provides a caring, therapeutic milieu with positive behavioral supports, trauma-informed approaches, evidence-based mental health practices, small-group classroom instruction, and therapeutic recreation activities. My primary responsibilities include program management, external relations, hiring and human relations, development work, and serving as the academic director.
