    Welcome!

    I am so excited to be starting my 11th year as the 7th Grade Counselor at Willis Jr High. I am a military brat which has allowed me the awesome opportunity to travel all over the world! I was born in Japan, and lived in London, San Diego, Virginia, Arizona, and have been stuck here ever since. My husband and I have two wonderful boys Logan 18 and Dylan 15 who keep us very busy!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am entering my 19th year as a Junior High Counselor, 8 years in Gilbert and now my 11th year in Chandler. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona (Beardown) and my Masters degree in Counseling from Ottawa University. 

    My Educational Philosophy

    Jr High can be such a challenging time for all students: academically, peer pressure, family challenges, friendship challenges, fitting in , managing extracurricular activities, and so much more. Unfortunately students tend to try to take this on themselves. I am excited to work with all of the students at Willis to help all of these challenges become more manageable for them. I believe in our students and their potential both academically and socially. We all want our students to feel safe, valued, challenged, supported, and respected. I am looking forward to being a part of many more success stories here at Willis Jr High! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your student.
