My role as the school counselor is to support students in areas of social, emotional, and academic development. I offer help in navigating proper school behavior, positive peer/adult relationships, dealing with negative feelings both at school and outside of school, and techniques for success in the classroom. In addition to supporting students, I also offer support to teachers and parents in order to create a positive, successful environment for everyone. Below are some links to resources for parents. Please do not hesitate to contact me via the methods listed at the bottom of the page.
On a personal note, I have been married for 13 years and we have two wonderful children. Our kids are in third and fourth grade here at West. Before I was the counselor I served as the Secretary to the Principal for almost 5 years. I love working at West and I am thankful I get to continue my work here with this wonderful team. Outside of school, depending on the season, you'll find me at the soccer field, basketball court, or pool as our kids' biggest fan! When I'm not out with my family I enjoy reading and trying my hand at the many Pinterest pins I have accumulated.
