I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Art Education K-12 and UNCC with a Master’s in School Counseling. Before going away to college I was an MPHS graduate as well, so I have been where you are…literally! I am originally from Charlotte and love this city. When I am not working I enjoy running, hiking, making art, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m so excited to be back at Myers Park!

I am a two-time Salem College Alumna. I earned both my undergraduate degree in English and my Master's degree in School Counseling from Salem College, the oldest women's college in the country.
I have been in education for 15 years, beginning my work as an English teacher of every grade from 7th through 12th. I have been at Myers Park for 5 of those years. When I am not spending time at Myers Park as a counselor or coordinating SAT and ACT with my husband and Myers Park teacher, Mike Dowdy, I try to stay as active and social as possible. Cinna, our pittie mix, and Sulu and Noki, our cats, keep us occupied most of the time, but we enjoy experiencing all the Queen City has to offer. We also love to travel to Asheville and the Outer Banks. To relax, you can normally find us watching sports, The Office, or anything "binge-worthy."

I started at Myers Park high school in 2007. I was at Randolph middle school from 1989 – 2000. I love being a school counselor and working with teenagers. When I am not working I enjoy tennis, golf, bridge and spending time with lifelong friends. I have two sons, Scott and Mark, both in their twenties. Scott graduated from UNC Wilmington and works as an accountant in Charlotte. Mark is a current student at UNC Wilmington. My husband and I will celebrate 31 years this summer. I graduated from UNC Charlotte twice – undergraduate and graduate. My husband and I have enjoyed attending UNC Charlotte basketball and football games over the years and supporting our Alma Mater. Go Niners!

I graduated from Auburn University with both a Bachelor's of Science and Master's of Education degree. I am also a National Board Certified School Counselor. I have been an educator for almost three decades. Gosh, where did the time go?! I love working with students and enjoy seeing them grow into self assured young adults. I also love to read and try to read approximately one book per month. It doesn't matter the genre. As long the book grabs my attention, I am all in. In addition, I love to travel so that I can experience new things and meet new people. And most important, I love to spend quality time with my family.

This is my 15th year as a School Counselor and I have been at Myers Park for the last 7 years. I have wanted to be a School Counselor since I was in middle school! I received my undergraduate degree from Norfolk State University in Norfolk, VA and my master’s degree from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. One of my favorite quotes is "You learn something everyday if you pay attention" by Ray LeBlond. I thoroughly enjoy working with students and families and when I am not working I am spending time with family and friends!

I have served the MPHS community as a school counselor for the end of the alphabet for 13 years! My family has been a member of this community for even longer, and both of my adult daughters are proud MP alums. I earned my undergraduate and Master’s degree in School Counseling from the University of Virginia. Most quickly realize that I am a rabid, enthusiastic UVA fan – my dad had been a student athlete at UVA, and I was as well so my love for the Wahoos runs deep and long. When I am not at MP, you can often find me running, practicing yoga, or playing golf with my husband. Sometimes I slow down to read, and my favorite book which I wish all MP families would read is Where You Go is Not Who You’ll Be by Frank Bruni. I feel lucky that I have been at MPHS long enough that I have been the counselor for ALL children in some families. MPUKNOW!
