• I am very excited to have joined the Upper Merion High School Guidance Department. In the 2023-2024 school year my counseling caseload covers the Class of 2024 (Last names A-K) and Class of 2026 (Last Name A-K). I am excited to get to know each and everyone of you and assist with your development towards your future goals. More excitingly, as Class of 2004 Graduate of Upper Merion High School, it is an honor to return back to the very place that contributed to my growth and development. Prior to joining the Upper Merion Community in March 2021, I was a School Counselor in Philadelphia since 2011. I have enjoy the multitude of experiences I had in Philadephia as a High School, Middle School, and Elementary School Counselor. I truly believe that working as a united team is the best way to make the most out of you/your child's educational experience.


    In addition to my role as School Counselor, I am excited to be a Co-Sponsor of the Black Student Union. During my time as a student at Upper Merion, I was an active member in BSU. My mission is to empower students in BSU to use their voices to create positive change within our school community. We are actively seeking student leaders to be involved in the many activities that we are interested in developing this school year!


    Have a great 2023-2024 School Year!
