This is my 6th year at Highland Middle School.  Prior to moving to NC I worked as a middle school counselor at a school in Northern VA.
I graduated from Wake Forest University with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology.  I also graduated from Wake Forest with my Master's degree in Counseling Education.  I live at home with my husband and dog Zoey.  I have 3 sons.  My oldest son graduated from college, the middle one works and lives on his own,  and the youngest just started his senior year at East Carolina University. I love to play tennis, cycle, read, cook, and take my dog for long walks. I also led the Cooking Club last year and will lead it again this year.
My passion is helping students grow and navigate the middle school years.  I work to help them overcome perceived obstacles, develop self-confidence, and deal with peer pressure in positive ways.  I believe in the potential of all students and work with them to help them realize that potential in themselves.
