Alison's picture

Hello!  I’m Alison Sharp.   I was born and raised in Upstate New York, and went to college at State University of New York at Potsdam, studying Music and Psychology.  After graduation, I worked as a residence counselor with mentally ill adults.  That experience led me to decide that I wanted to work with children and young people to provide help earlier.  I earned my Specialist Degree in School Psychology from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1998, and began serving several districts, ranging from rural to urban.  I moved to North Carolina in 2002. 


I am married with two teenage sons.  I am beginning my 7th year as a school psychologist with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.  For my first two years with the school district I served as a long-term substitute in a variety of places.  I have been happily serving the Walkertown Schools and Carver High School for over 4 years now.  I enjoy assessment, collaboration and consultation, and being a part of the school community.  If you like to speak with me, feel free to email me at or call me at 727-8037.
