Educator Bio

Welcome! I am very excited about my new role as School Counselor at Brevard Middle! I have worked within the counseling field for over 15 years in both the educational and private sectors. As a School Counselor, I enjoy helping adolescents with their academic, emotional and social development by providing them with skills and knowledge to empower them to meet the challenges of school and life. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to an amazing year!
