About Me
This is my 15th year as a school counselor here at Sherwood High School.  I previously worked as a counselor in a residential treatment program, and as an admissions counselor for Job Corps.  I always tell people that I have the best job in the world because it is never boring!  I look forward to building relationships with my students and their families to help them successfully navigate the road ahead as they progress toward graduation and their dreams for the future.  As an advocate for students, I will do my best to help students remove barriers to academic and personal success.  Outside of school I enjoy watching the Timbers, dancing, and spending time with my wonderful husband, 20 yr old daughter, and 5th grade twins.  Please feel free to contact me anytime; I am here to help!
