It is a pleasure to be the 8th grade counselor at Foley Middle School. I am currently in my 4th year as a School Counselor. I spent 2 years at Foley High School before transitioning to Foley Middle. I graduated in 2013 with a B.A. in Psychology and in 2015 with a M.Ed in School Counseling from Auburn University. War Eagle! I am currently pursuing a Ed.S in School Counseling with Jacksonville State University.
I was born and raised in Connecticut. I fell in love with "The South" during my time at Auburn and never went back home. I moved to Baldwin County shortly after graduating and have been here ever since. I have a twin sister, Kara, who moved down to the area and lives beside me. I have two older brothers I have two older brothers as well. I have two dogs, Bentley and Remy, who I adore very much. I also have two horses, Paris and Andy. I have ridden horses competitvely since I was very young. I spend just about all of my spare time with my animals.
At Foley Middle School, I serve as the Building Test Coordinator, RTI Chairperson, a member of the Lighthouse Committee, and the leader of the Family Learning Action Team. I look forward to another great year at Foley Middle School. My door is always open to students and parents!
