I am excited to have served the Memorial community as a school counselor since 2004. My passion is helping students and families and teaching kids about problem solving, goal-setting, and conflict resolution. I have been a school counselor in Plano ISD since 2000, and prior to that I was a classroom teacher and a school counselor in Waco ISD. Before I came to Memorial I was a school counselor at Beverly Elementary in Plano and Bell’s Hill Elementary in Waco. I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1994 and a Master of Science in Educational Psychology in 1997.
I am looking forward to working with students and families this year!

What Memorial means to me.
Memorial is my home. Having served here since 2004, I have seen many families come and go and had the opportunity to see a second generation of students! I started at Memorial when my own child entered Kindergarten and now he has graduated, so it has been a lifetime for me! I love seeing former students in the community working and going to school and learning about their lives after Memorial. I am grateful to have had the chance to grow with this community for so many years.
