Biography

I am a 7th and 8th grade school counselor at a middle school in Western North Carolina. I received a Masters of Arts in Education degree from Western Carolina University and earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Sociology from Towson University. I have worked in the field of education and mental health with adolescents for the last 20 years in a number of different facets (high school, middle school, in the field of outdoor, experiential education, and in group homes). I work with middle school students with a wide array of issues including mental health, relational, behavioral, and academic. I also lead a leadership team for our mindfulness in education initiative county-wide.
