About Me

Staff Bio

I am the full-time School Counselor at Pisgah Forest Elementary School. 2019-2020 is my 10th year at PFE and my 13th year with Transylvania County Schools. I am proud to be able to help students reach their full potential - academically and emotionally.

I am an area native, a proud graduate of Transylvania County Schools, and a first-generation college graduate. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Elon University. I briefly worked in accounting and event planning before I became a Student Advocate (focusing in drop-out prevention and student retention) at Rosman Middle and High Schools. Early in my time at RMS/RHS, I knew I wanted to work with students long-term and went back to school. In 2010, I received my Master of Arts in Education (School Counseling) degree from Western Carolina University.

I love living in the mountains of North Carolina and spending time with my husband (a high school Social Studies teacher), my son (an active two-year-old), and my rescue dog. I also really enjoy reading, trying new restaurants, helping others, and relaxing in the backyard.
