I am so excited and blessed to be a professional school counselor at BHS. I have a Masters in Mental Health Counseling and an Ed.S. in School Counseling from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am married and have 2 boys. My family is so much fun and keeps me so busy. I enjoy reading, going to football games and all sorts of sporting events (even if my husband has brainwashed my children to be Georgia fans), boating, using my creative skills, and getting to know people.
