I am excited to be back at Oquirrh Hills Middle School. I enjoyed working with the students, parents and faculty and look forward to meeting and getting to know as many of the students as I can. I have a passion for working with students in an academic and social setting guiding them toward becoming college and career ready.
My educational background consists of earning a bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Utah in 2004. I returned to school at the University of Phoenix one year later earning a master's degree in School Counseling in 2008. I enjoyed my educational experience and hope to influence students of OHMS.

I attended the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) for my undergraduate degree (B.S.Ed.) in Communication Sciences and Disorders and received my graduate degree (M.Ed.) in School Counseling from the University of Phoenix.
