I am so excited to be a part of the Forest Vista family! I am originally from Ohio, but graduated from Texas Christian University with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. After graduation, I taught 4th grade in Everman, Texas for three years before moving to Flower Mound. I taught 2nd grade at Bridlewood Elementary for six years while working on my Master of Education in School Counseling at Dallas Baptist University. I am currently in my seventh year as counselor at FVE! During my free time, I enjoy shopping, traveling to new places, playing with my dog, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I have a son, Aaden, who is seven and also a Forest Vista eagle!

All classes have guidance lessons once every three weeks. Lessons are 30-45 minutes long. Parent letters are sent home after every time I visit a classroom.
