A Bit About Me
Before becoming a school guidance counselor I was in elementary education for 14 years. During that time I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I received 2 Bachelor  degrees from Johnson State College, one in Elementary Education and one in Anthropology and Sociology. I also received my Masters degree in Counseling at Johnson State College.

I am married and live in Morrisville, Vermont. I have 2 boys named Colby and Tucker. I enjoy being outside as much as possible. I have always had a passion for hiking and recently finished hiking the Long Trail. Working in my gardens brings me great joy and satisfaction. My husband and I built our own house and there is never a shortage of projects to do around the house!
