    Class of 2025 

    Prior to the start of school year we will be holdilng a 9th Grade Orientation for high school with our Link Crew Team. It will be the morning of Thursday, August 26th at the High School and all 9th graders are invited to attend. Please look for more information as we get closer to the date.

    Have a Wonderful & Safe Summer!

    In addition to counseling, I coach and am one of the UM Link Crew Coordinators. Link Crew is an amazing program to support our 9th graders as they transition to high school. I am thrilled to work alongside Mrs. Miller and Mr. Taylor-Storm to keep this program going. I also enjoy coaching field hockey and lacrosse. I am 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 working out, cooking, watching Philadelphia Flyers games and getting to the beach as much as possible. 
    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.
    Students- I have an open door policy. Please swing by the Hub or send me an email if you have a question or need to talk.
    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.
