Hello! This is my third year as a school counselor at North Buncombe Elementary. This is a wonderful school and community and I feel very blessed to work with such special people. I graduated in 2006 with my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from UNC-Asheville and in 2010 with my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Western Carolina University. After graduate school I worked in McDowell County as a school counselor for four wonderful years. I currently live in Asheville with my husband Dan and our daughter. I love to read, hike, camp and spend time with my sweet family.
My goal as a school counselor is to help all students learn and grow to their highest potential socially, emotionally, and academically. If I can be of assistance to you and your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. You are welcome to call, email, or stop me in the hall! I split my time between two schools so I am at North Buncombe on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday. At North Buncombe I work primarily with 2nd and 3rd graders. I spend the other half of my time at West Buncombe Elementary. I look forward to working with all of you again this year!
