I am excited to begin my tenth year as a school counselor and my second at Southwest High School! I am the 12-month counselor, and I work primarily with students who have a last name that begins with letters A - L.
My experience in education began as a teacher assistant at Southwest Elementary and Richlands Elementary. After completing my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from UNCW, I taught fifth grade at Richlands Elementary and Stateside Elementary. I returned to school to earn my Masters Degree in Counselor Education from ECU, and I worked as the School Counselor at Heritage Elementary and Meadow View Elementary Schools.
I am a product of Onslow County Schools; I attended Northwoods Park Middle School, and I graduated from Jacksonville High School. I have been married for 32 years, and we have a son who graduated from NC State and our daughter is a sophomore at NC State.
I look forward to working with our students and families this year!
