    About Me:  

    This is my 13th year as an educator and 7th as a school counselor. I began my career in WPS as a 3rd grade teacher at Seltzer Elementary. I've since been a middle school and high school counselor in Kansas and Texas. I am also a college professor and nationally certified counselor. I love being a high school counselor! My hobbies include: running, Crossfit, reading (mostly thrillers), spending time with my friends and family, and traveling. Two of my favorite places are Glacier National Park and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Anywhere with mountains makes me happy. 

     

    Why I Love North: I love the traditions and school pride! We also have an amazing community of families that support the school!

    About Me: This is my 9th year North High. I served as the College Career Center Coordinator at North for five years before transitioning to school counseling. My goal is to help students be successful in school by providing academic guidance and social/emotional support. Some of my favorite things to do outside of school include spending time with my family and five-year-old son, being outdoors, traveling, watching movies, listening to music, making art, practicing Spanish and gardening. Also, I have one cat and six chickens!

     

    Why I Love North: North High students have spirit and grit. My favorite North High memory is signing the Tower with the Class of 2015, my first year at North. I loved being a part of the signing tradition.

    About Me:  This is my first year at North High. I have been in the Early Childhood Education field for 3 years. Student Government Association and Graduate Student Council have prepared me for the role of a counselor by strengthening my leadership skills and being an advocate. I aim to enhance and raise awareness for mental health and guide the students to success. Spending time with my family, running, painting, traveling, and outdoor activities helps me stay focused and well-grounded as a counselor. 

     

    Why I Love North:  I love North because there are similarities/ traditions to the high school I graduated from. North High feels like home away from home!

    About Me: This is my 5th year at North High, but 9th year as a counselor. I have been working for several years in various schools in the North End community. This is where I feel at home. I share many of our students' and family backgrounds and that is why I feel that I can relate to our students and make more of a difference in our community. My philosophy in life is that we are all equal and all have the same privilege and opportunity to attain a good education for a brighter future. This is the reason I am here to help our students, no matter what the obstacles life throws at us. SI SE PUEDE! I have two teenagers that keep me busy outside of school. I love spending time with my family and traveling to new places!

     

    Why I Love North: North High students and families are my family. I have known some of you for years and seen our students grow into young, amazing adults. My reward as a counselor is to see my students excel in life and go beyond their own expectations.
