Hello, I’m pleased to serve as your child’s school counselor. My primary focus is to educate students on topics relating to social-emotional learning and provide individual and small-group counseling services on a short-term basis. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a National Certified School Counselor (NCSC). I am also a former ELA & social studies teacher. I am eager to assist your child with their social-emotional needs.
I was born and raised in Shelby, MS. I am the eldest of three children.
My hobbies include reading, writing, listening to music and podcasts, and watching movies. My music preferences are eclectic, but I mostly enjoy discovering classic R&B and hip-hop. My favorite types of podcasts include news/current events, comedy, and true crime. My favorite book genres are memoirs, non-fiction, and history. My favorite movie genres are mystery, suspense, and horror.
