Thank you for visiting my page! I have had the distinct pleasure and honor to serve Graham Park Middle School (GPMS) students since 2014.  
 
I am a proud graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Golden Gate University, and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VaTech).  Go Salukis and Hokies!  Prior to becoming a School Counselor, I served 20 years in the US Armed Forces.  

My goal as a School Counselor is to listen to students' concerns about their academic, emotional or social challenges.  More importantly than listening, my goal is to assist students with processing their concerns so that they may arrive at their own conclusions.  Additionally, I serve as an advocate for students' well-being academically, socially, and emotionally.  My motto as I assist students is "Proud to Serve!"
 
When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family.  Additionally, as a favorite pass time, I enjoy knitting, crocheting and sewing. Mostly, I am excited to be a part of the Graham Park Family where assisting students with developing successful academic, career, and social/emotional success is my goal and adhering to my motto - "Proud to Serve!"
