 I am available to meet with students and families most days and times. Students will be able to refer themselves, but I will also take referrals from families and staff members.

I grew up in Lincoln, NE and attended Beattie Elementary, Scott Middle School, and Lincoln Southwest as a student. I have two dogs, Benji and Gus, who I love to show off and tell stories about. 

As a teacher, I love building strong relationships with students and their families, advocating for their needs, and watching students grow to their full potential. As a school counselor, I enjoy getting to work with ALL students and families and helping in more ways than just supporting academics.
