My journey here as an Elementary School Counselor started in 2013. Prior to working here, I spent two years as a K-12 Counselor at Colo-NESCO CSD, one year as an At-Risk Coordinator for South Hamilton CSD, and three years as a Physical Education teacher at St. Patrick's Catholic School in Sheldon, Iowa. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education in 2007 from Briar Cliff University. I obtained my Masters of Science degree in School Guidance and Counseling from Buena Vista University in 2012.
Outside of school, I devote my time to my husband, Patrick and our son, Liam. I also enjoy playing volleyball and softball, watching sports, going to theatre events, playing the piano and singing, reading, learning anything and everything, spending time outdoors, gardening, and traveling back home to Northwest Iowa to see my family and friends.
