My road in life took a while to figure out.
Did academically well in high school until I got "Senioritis" in my senior year!
Met positive and goal-oriented people in my life to give me direction to take college more seriously.
Had an interest in several college majors in community college: computer science, accounting, & math.
Decided to major in Social Sciences and pursue a career in high school teaching.
My educational circumstances didn't lead me to pursue a high school teaching career.
Graduated and became an elementary school tutor for Americorps and taught as a substitute teacher.
Pursued my educational goals to become a school counselor because of experiences working with kids.
Enjoyed to start my school counseling career in August 2004.
Keep following my journey

Helping People

Day to Day

I can come to work with my schedule set for the day. I talk with students who have personal issues that involve family and / or school life. I assist them in trying to find strategies and resources to help them cope with the stresses that are experienced as a teenager. I also provide guidance to help students plan and create goals for them to do well in school and to think about their post-secondary options after graduating high school.
