    Happy Summer Break! I am currently on maternity leave and will be out through mid November 2022. Once a substitute is hired for my time out (closer to the end of summer) I will post their contact information. In the interim, if you have questions over the summer please reach out to Mrs. Berman or one of the other counselors via email. Remember to direct any college questions to Ms. Amanda Garro. 

    Have a great summer and I'll see you next fall!

    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.
