    Hello! What a year it has been at UMAHS! As I close out my time with the seniors, Class of 2019, I look forward to welcoming the incoming 9th graders, Class of 2023. Next year I will be working with Ms. Trish Brower covering students in the Class of 2021 (11th grade) and the Class of 2023 (9th grade). Specifically, I have students with last names starting with L-Z. 

    Class of 2023

    There will be a 9th grade orientation (new this year) for all incoming freshmen on Thursday, August 22nd from 8:30-12:30. It will be a morning of team building, fun and getting to know some great upperclassmen and the high school building. Look for more information in the mail!


    Schedules for the 2019-2020 school year

    Students will receive one more course verification sheet showing courses they selected for the upcoming school year. Upon reciept of this if any courses are not the correct level (CP, Honors, AP) or they have changed their mind about taking an elective please reach out ASAP. We have the ability to adjust schedules until the first day of school.


    Summer Break Info

    Throughout the summer break I will have hours I am at the high school and available to meet with families and students regarding schedules or college planning. Below are the dates that I will be in the office this summer. If you would like to come in during this time you need to contact Elaine Berman at Eberman@umasd.org, to set up your appointment. The counselors do check email throughout the summer so if you require an easy schedule change (switching electives) you can email me the request and I will likely be able to handle it without an appointment.

    Prior to my time at Upper Merion I served as a long term substitute at Great Valley High School and Wyomissing Area Jr./Sr. High School. I hold a B.S. in psychology from High Point University and a M.S. in secondary school counseling from Villanova University.
    In addition to counseling, I also enjoy coaching field hockey and lacrosse. This year I served as the head lacrosse coach at UMAMS and love getting to work with the students in a different capacity. I am also the assistant field hockey coach at Perk Valley High School. In my free time I enjoy running, cooking, watching Philadelphia Flyers games, and getting to the beach as much as possible. 
    Students- I have an open door policy so please feel free to come by the Hub or send me an email if you'd like to set up a meeting.  
    Parents- email is the fastest way to reach me. I am on email throughout the day and generally try to respond to messages within 24 hours. Please also feel free to call me or set up a meeting as needed.
