Degrees and Certifications:
I'm a North Carolinian from Robeson County and a member of the Lumbee Native American Tribe. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Educational Psychology and a Master’s degree in the Art of School Counseling from the University of North Carolina At Pembroke. Before becoming a licensed school counselor, I was a teacher for nine years. Being a teacher gave me the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience working with students in the public school system. As a mom of 3, my children also attend public schools in North Carolina, I understand the importance and commitment it takes to provide a safe nourishing environment for all students. It is my belief as a school counselor that our students will maximize their potential for academic, career and social emotional success in order to become productive lifelong learners. My personal hobbies include, decorating, cooking, tennis, painting, and writing. A future goal I have set for myself, within the next 5 years, is to become a published author of children books. As your Pleasant Grove Elementary School Counselor I look forward to providing support services for our students and flyer families!
