I am thrilled to be the School Counselor at JWLA. I am very passionate about making a lasting positive impact on my students and community!


After completing high school at Argo Community High School, I continued my post-secondary education at Moraine Valley Community College. At MVCC, I took all my general education classes necessary and was on the basketball team! After MVCC, I transferred to Governors State University and got my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. While coaching high school basketball, I realized my passion was to help support my players on and off the court. In 2018, I attended National Louis University and earned my Masters's in School Counseling three years later. 

When I am not at work, I am spending time with my family and friends. I love going to sporting events, traveling, cooking, and being outdoors.
