Degrees and Certifications:
This is my first year as a school counselor and as a Heath Panther! I have been an elementary and middle school teacher for fourteen years, most recently at Prairie Heights Middle School here in Greeley. My husband and I moved here five years ago from our home state of Texas, and we love Colorado! I grew up in the Southeast Texas area and attended Lamar University in Beaumont, then began my teaching career there. One of the highlights of my career was teaching English in Budapest, Hungary.
I decided to become a school counselor because as a teacher, I loved helping students set goals and create plans for themselves to be more successful! I want all students to find where they fit in, experience success in their classes, and to enjoy coming to school every day.
I love reading, cooking, watching TV, hiking, and traveling with my family. One day I hope to finish visiting all fifty states (I'm over halfway there), and I've visited 22 countries. My husband Chris and I have two awesome, wild little girls: Julia (3) and Fiona (1).
