School Counselor

Education/Certification:

M.Ed. in School Counseling from Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland.

B.A. in Psychology with a Minor in Business Administration from Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland.

I'm a National Board Certified Counselor  (NBCC).

Experience as a school counselor:

1999-2007:  Monroe County Schools, Florida.

2007-2008: Citrus County Schools, Florida.

2008-present: Hamilton County Schools, Tennessee.

I LOVE Soddy Elementary and have been blessed to have worked here since the 2014-15 school year.

More about me...

My husband Paul and I have two children, a 5th Grader and an 8th Grader. Both attend Hamilton County schools. We fell in love with the area and relocated here in 2008.

In addition to working at Soddy Elementary two days a week, I work at Big Ridge Elementary three days a week. At both schools I provide individual student counseling and planning, regular classroom K-5 Guidance lessons and small group counseling, as needed. As a student advocate, I collaborate with students, families, faculties and staff, and the community to help meet the academic, personal/social and career exploration needs of ALL students.
