Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am thrilled to part of Bella’s family as a school counselor at the 4-8 campus. I grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin and attended college in Milwaukee, WI (bachelor's degree in elementary and middle level education) and Beaumont, Texas (master's degree in professional school counseling). I have worked in public schools for over 14 years: as a science and STEM teacher, an instructional coach, and a school counselor. I love working with students and families to help students learn and grow in their awareness of themselves and others, and to help them build skills to achieve their dreams. Outside of school, I enjoy running, hiking, camping, gardening, and cooking. My favorite activity outside of school is spending time with my family, which includes my husband and our two young children.
