About me:
This is my 4th year working as a Guidance Counselor at Prospect High School. Prior to Prospect, I worked at Leigh High School as a Guidance Counselor for 2 years. I also have worked as a Substitute Teacher (all grade levels) and Mental Health Worker for adults with diagnosed with schizophrenia.
 
Best part of my job:
I really enjoy getting to know my students and watching them grow as they make their journey through high school!
 
Tips for success @ PHS:
Find a healthy balance between your academics and your personal/social life. Try not to compare yourself to your peers. Instead, focus on your own individual growth. If you're struggling with something, don't be afraid to reach out for help.
 
Something interesting about me:
I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and Doctor Seuss. I have 1 dog and 3 cats, and wish I could rescue more!
