Welcome! I am the school counselor at McBride. My job is to support the personal/social, academic, and career development of all of our students through classroom lessons, individually, and/or small groups. As a professional school counselor, I advocate for students' success using a solution-focused approach by collaborating with teachers, staff, parents/guardians and the community.  
This is my 14th year in education. I have taught kindergarten, 3rd, and 4th grade before becoming a counselor in 2013. I graduated from the University of North Alabama with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2006. I obtained a Master's in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama in 2008. I am currently working on national board certification.
