Hello Sidewinders!

I'm excited to serve as a half-time counselor at Smith Junior High School. Prior to working in Mesa, I was employed as a counselor, principal and district administrator for Gilbert Public Schools and began my educational career as a special education teacher. 

Having grown up in the mid-west, I was thrilled to attend college in Arizona and earned my bachelor's degree in special education and master's degree in counselor education at Arizona State University. Additionally, I completed educational leadership programs through Northern Arizona University.

When I'm not at Smith, I enjoy spending time with my husband. On a final note, I am proud to share my son and his fiance are also employed with Mesa Public Schools!
