    Thank you for visiting my website.  I am excited to be entering my 17th year here as a counselor with the Upper Merion Area School District.  Time flies when you're having fun :). I have been fortunate to work as a middle school counselor since 2003 and my passion for this profession continues to grow.  I am so blessed to feel as though there is truly no other career that I would rather be doing!  
    I completed my undergraduate studies at Dickinson College and my graduate studies at Villanova University.  I am certified as a K-12 School Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania.  I am the current UMASD 5-8 Guidance Department Chair and also serve on the Board of the Montgomery County Counselors Association. 
    Working with middle school students is great fun.  The students always contribute to much laughter and smiling throughout the day.  Their energy is contagious and it's a privilege to watch the transformation of the kids from children to teenagers during their middle school experience.  It's a wild ride!  
    I am excited to work with our 6th graders again this year, members of the Class of 2028!  It's awesome to be able to welcome ALL students back to in-person learning and I assure you that the 2021-2022 school year will be a memorable time of settling back into routines, community building, and resilience as we transition back from our modified practices during the pandemic.  Interactions and instruction from talented teachers, fun activities and experiences, new clubs and school groups to try out, and the opportunity to meet and make new friends will make for a memorable year.  I'm excited to get this year started.  
    As always, I am here to help in any way. I encourage communication with students and parents.  Please contact me by calling my office or sending me an email and I will be happy to get back to you.  I hope that you are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
