Sondra McCarty (Psychologist)
I am excited to begin my 10th year as the School Psychologist at Pioneer School. I obtained my Bachelors in Communication and Psychology at University of California, Santa Barbara and my Masters and Education Specialist degree in School Psychology from California State University, Sacramento. Prior to joining Twin Rivers, I worked in Dixon Unified School District. I collaborate with both school staff and families in developing plans that offer educational supports and/or services necessary for students to be successful in school. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and running non-stop after my daughters.
