This is my eighth year working in the Counseling Department at Jesuit High School and my third year as the Director of Counseling Services. I earned my degree in Liberal Studies from Sacramento State with the intent of teaching in the elementary schools. Many years later, I found a home among the wonderful faculty and staff at Jesuit and was inspired to go back to school. In 2014, I began my Masters in Educational Counseling and earned my PPS Credential in 2016. I absolutely love working at Jesuit and being a part of this school community. I am truly fortunate to be able to continue my work with the students in this new role and look forward to an exciting year.

  • BA Liberal Studies – CSU Sacramento, 2005
  • MS Educational Counseling – National University, 2016
