I'm very excited to be your child's school counselor!
I hope this page helps you to get to know me a little better.
I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education from Longwood University in the Spring of 2005. In the fall of 2008, I was accepted into the Graduate program for School Guidance and Counseling at Longwood University. I have successfully completed all the courses for the program, along with 450 practicum hours- at Greenfield Elementary, in Chesterfield County and Fork Union Military School, in Fork Union, VA and at Nottoway Middle School. I officially graduated in December 2010, with my Master's of Education in school guidance and counseling.
I taught 2nd grade at Amelia Elementary for seven years, and 3rd grade for three years (and three months!). This school year, starts my twelfth year in education!

From the picture above, you can tell I come from a pretty BIG family. I have three brothers and fours sisters!! Although I was born in State College, Pa.- I moved to Richmond, Va. when I was four, and grew up there. I attended Greenfield Elementary, Robious Middle, and James River High schools in Chesterfield County, Va.
I purchased my first home in the fall of 2013, and currently live in Farmville, VA with my husband. We welcomed our son into our family on February 25, 2016! He is a happy little guy, and we are beyond blessed to be his parents. I love to exercise as a great way to relieve stress. I completed my first half marathon (13.1 miles) in the fall of 2009, with a time of 2 hours and 38 minutes!!!
