School Counselor

Welcome back, everyone, to the 2021-2022 school year!

This is my fifth year with Guthrie Public Schools and second year as a school counselor here at the Guthrie Junior High School. Previously, I taught students Science and Social Studies at Guthrie Upper Elementary School. I enjoy working with the school counseling team and so pleased to work with students on a new level. My ambition as school counselor is to help each student work to their potential and also to assist parents and teachers in achieving this goal. I feel that collaborative effort between the counselor, student, parents/guardians, administration and teachers is necessary for student success.

My degrees and certifications include: BA in Psychology, MEd in School Counseling, MEd School Leadership and teaching certifications in Mid-level Science and Social Studies, US History/Government/Economics (5-12), English and Journalism (5-12) and Psychology/Sociology (5-12).

I have two sons - both attend UCO. One is a sophomore, majoring in Journalism and the other is a senior, majoring in Computer Science.


The first step toward tolerance is respect, and the first step toward respect is knowledge.
