2020-2021 school year will be my 16th with LCPS.
I grew up in the mountains of western Maryland. I spent much of my undergrad class time out-of-doors, or studying the outdoors. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Parks and Recreation and an Associate of Arts in Recreation Leadership. I loved my time as a Parks and Recreation major, and while it is not the traditional background of a school counselor, it instilled in me the desire to help people become healthy and whole individuals.
A military move brought me to Virginia, where I have lived for 30 years.
I returned to school in 2001 as a "continuing education” student. I graduated in 2005 from George Mason University where I received my Master’s of Education Degree with a concentration in School Counseling.
I am blessed with two sons who increased our family and the blessings when they married. I am a "Grammy" of two awesome boys and four lively granddaughters, who bring joy to my life.
Spending time with family and friends, reading,and enjoying the outdoors are how I like to spend my free time. I am looking forward to another awesome year of growing at Sterling Elementary.
