I am excited to be your child’s school counselor! As a school counselor, my responsibility is to help guide the educational, career, personal, and social development of all students. I have 17 total years of experience in education with 12 in school counseling at all grade levels EC-12. Prior to accepting an RTI positions with Brownwood ISD, I was a counselor at Taylor High School in Taylor, Texas.
