Welcome to Whittier's Counseling Website!

I am so excited to be a school counselor at Whittier this year! I earned my Bachelor's degree in social work from Arizona State University and my Master's degree in social work from the University of Southern California. I have previously worked as a behavior interventionist as well as doing crisis response.

I was born in Illinois and have lived in Arizona for 20+ years. I am also a realtor and have a family dog sitting business. I love to go on adventures and spend time with my 3 dogs. I enjoy watching and playing sports. I'm a big fan of the Chicago Cub's and Green Bay Packers. The counselors at Whittier are here to help the Whittier community by supporting students and providing resources to families. Please reach out to us and let us know how we can help.
