I am the oldest of six children and spent summers growing up as a camp counselor. I love anything to do with the outdoors including hiking, running, skiing, and waterskiing. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to oldies music, or watching a good crime show. I love reading mystery and crime books.
I am a graduate of James Madison University. There I studied speech pathology and special education. I then went on to teach a summer program in the South Bronx for middle school girls. A portion of the program involved mentoring and I found that having a social and emotional component to the program made a big difference in the classroom among peers. I then received a Master’s in School Counseling from The George Washington University. I worked with elementary, middle school, and high school students by helping them achieve academic and personal success through individual and group counseling and classroom lessons. Helping students unlock their potential, interests and strengths gives me joy. I look forward to continue helping students build confidence in their social, emotional, and academic development.
