I am originally from Texarkana, Texas where I grew up in a family of educators.  I attended Texas A & M University in College Station after high school where I met my husband of 33 years. We are the proud parents of three children and four grandchildren. In addition to family, I enjoy reading and crocheting.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with an BBA in Accounting and spent 20 years in the field. Eventually, I found my true passion when I transitioned to teaching in 2009. In December of 2015, I received a Master of Education in School Counseling from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.   I am honored to be your school counselor.

It is my goal to teach students to be academically successful through organization,study skills, planning, and effort. I feel that it is critical for students to have prior knowledge regarding the career paths of their dreams so that they can better prepare and enter them with ease. I believe that all students can be successful given the right educational formula. Communication is key and perseverance is a must for all concerned.  I look forward to partnering with you in the success of your child(ren).

 OPPORTUNITIES + HARD WORK = SUCCESS
