Counselor for 6th, 7th and 8th grade blue teams.

I have loved my transition to working with Middle School students.  I support students academically, socially and with  career development.  I work with students individually, in small groups as well as in the classroom.   I consider myself a key liaison between parents, teachers, and students to assist in maximizing student success and potential.  

I hold two Masters degrees from Western Michigan University.  One degree, in the specialty area of Counseling Psychology which allows me to practice as a Limited License Psychologist in the State of Michigan and the other degree in Counselor Education allowing me the opportunity to practice as a Licensed School Counselor.  

I have worked as a school counselor for the past 15 years and have experiences in both High School and Middle school settings.  Prior to working as a school counselor, I was employed by Kalamazoo Community Mental Health as a School based liaison  consulting and linking students with mental health needs to appropriate services in the community.  Additionally, I have a long history of working as an outreach therapist in both the public and private sector.

Counselor for 6th, 7th and 8th grade white teams.


I support students’ academic, social, and career development by working with students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom. I develop positive relationships with students and work closely with their families, teachers, and the community to problem solve and connect to additional resources. I also work with staff to develop and implement a Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS) to identify struggling students and connect them to interventions and resources to increase academic success.

I have a Master’s of Science in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and have spent the last 12 years working with students in community and school settings in both Wisconsin and Michigan.
