Biography

I am proud to have served at Mesa Public Schools as an Elementary Counselor since 2006.  Currently, I am the Counselor at Lowell every Tuesday, Friday and every other Wednesday; and I am the Counselor at Whitman Elementary every Monday, Thursday, and the alternate Wednesdays.

Prior to coming to Mesa Public Schools, I was a School Based Caseworker for the City of Phoenix, serving at Camelback High School for six years.  As a Caseworker, I held a role similar to a School Counselor, and that experience inspired me to obtain my Master's Degree of Education in School Counseling from Northern Arizona University. I am also a member of the Arizona School Counselors' Association.

As an Elementary Counselor, my role is to support the growth of students in the areas of academics, personal and social skills, and career awareness.  I love teaching guidance lessons in the classrooms each month.  I also can  help students in small groups to develop school success skills.  Meeting with parents - either in conferences or at workshops - is also an important  way to support your students' success.
