Biographical Information
I have been a school  counselor  since 1992 and  in St. Johns County since 2006. Prior to serving as a school counselor I was an elementary teacher. Working with students, staff, and parents I have learned to appreciate the unique attributes of our school district. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to enhance student growth though individual, group, and classroom guidance lessons at Hickory Creek Elementary. I’m pleased to be a member of the Hickory Creek educational family and enjoy the students, community, and staff.
