Mission: The Southeast Warren School Counseling Department, in conjunction with students, faculty and staff, families, and our community will work towards: developing lifelong learners who are socially responsible, treat others with dignity, and understand how to be productive and successful citizens.

About Me:

I am a graduate of Southeast Warren and have lived in this community most of my life.  I attended Graceland University where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology.  I worked for several years in the college community, first in Admissions and then as a College Director.  That experience showed me how important it is to help our young people navigate social situations, become strong students, and advocate for themselves.  I decided to continue my education at Drake University to pursue my Master's of Science in Education, specializing in School Counseling.  I returned to Southeast Warren as K-12 School Counselor in 2012, and am proud to be a Warhawk!
