I am a permanently certified guidance counselor, where I work closely with students and professional staff. I have been actively involved in implementing character education, anti-bullying, and social skills programs, as well as, helping students achieve academically through individual and group counseling sessions. Through my position as a school guidance counselor, I have learned that counselors are integral to the entire educational process, and will support the staff and the administration in fostering a positive school environment. Being a part of a dedicated team of professional counselors, administrators, teachers, and clinicians has given me real hands on experience as a school counselor.
In addition, I have received excellent training from my previous positions within the higher education field, working with students both in admissions and student affairs. From those opportunities, I have gained essential counseling skills that have enabled me to be well-suited to meet the various needs of the students. I believe that my unique background in higher education, along with my experience in school counseling, has given me a tremendous amount of familiarity working with students.
I am a highly dedicated and motivated individual, who believes that social, emotional, and intellectual development is critical to a student’s academic success. I have strong organizational and interpersonal skills and I am extremely flexible. I am comfortable working with others and I do not mind putting in long hours to accomplish a task.
