Welcome back Village Families!
I know this has been a challenging time for all of us. I have missed all of you and am so ready to welcome you back to school.
This fall, I will be starting my 7th year at Village and my 8th year in GISD. This will also be my 22nd year as a professional school counselor.
I grew up in Orange, Texas, and received my Undergraduate and Master's degrees from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. My family moved to Georgetown in 2014. My husband and I have 3 amazing children. Austin, a Senior at Texas A&M, Alex, a Freshman at Texas A&M Galveston, and Abby, a Junior at GHS.
At Village, I am so fortunate to be able to spend a great deal of time in individual, group, and guidance counseling with our students. I enjoy helping students with anger management, anxiety, grief, divorce issues, social skills, self-esteem, and a variety of other areas that help them throughout the year.
I look forward to seeing those smiling faces this fall and welcoming back all of our families. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any help throughout the school year.

B.S. Elementary Education, Lamar University
M.Ed. Guidance and Counseling, Lamar University
