    A little bit about me:

    I was born as raised in the Staunton / Augusta County area.  I graduated from Buffalo Gap High School in 1996, and was a member of the Varsity Volleyball and Track Teams.  I then attended Bridgewater College where I was a member of the Volleyball Team and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.  I worked for a few years at the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents, then as a Teacher Assistant at the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind (VSDB).  In 2004, I started my School Counseling Master's Degree Program at James Madison University, and graduated in 2007.  Upon graduation, I returned to the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind.  In my 10 years as School Counselor at VSDB, I held the positions of Elementary/Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor/Transition Specialist, and also performed several of the School Social Work duties.  

    As I enter my second year at WMHS, I am excited to continue learning and working with an incredible group of staff, students and families!  I have an open-door policy, so feel free to contact me or come by anytime.

    My husband and I have two elementary-age daughters.  I love to laugh and enjoy life!  Some hobbies include playing guitar, knitting, camping, fishing, swimming, reading, and playing any and all games/sports with my family and friends.  An interesting fact about me is that I'm fluent in American Sign Language.
