I am a generalist social worker with over 20 years of experience in the field. I have spent the past 15 years in education and am excited to be part of the Pellissippi State Counseling team. My goal is to help students achieve their dreams by reducing barriers to academic success. I provide personal, career and academic counseling as well as assisting in identifying resources to aid students on their academic journey.

My professional areas of interests include: under resourced student issues, college and life skills issues, women’s development, self-esteem, depression, anxiety and outreach education.

My hobbies include vintiquing, spending time with family/friends, and playing with our family dog.
