For the last 11 years, I have worked as a school counselor in the K-12 school systems educating learners in the realms of academics, career, and mental health wellbeing. Ten of those eleven years were at a rural school district in North Dakota. A majority of that time was spent with learners in middle school and high school providing academic guidance, career planning, and addressing their social/emotional needs. For the past two years, I got to narrow my focus as a career counselor for learners in pre-school through high school seniors concentrating on career awareness and exploration with the younger learners and career planning for the high school learners. Prior to working in North Dakota, I was employed in a school district in Minnesota.
My educational background consists of a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Mary (Class of ‘06), a Master of Science in Applied Psychology with an emphasis in School Counseling from Eastern Washington University (Class of ’09), and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from NDSU (Class of ’17). I consider myself a lifelong learner and love sharing the passion of learning with all ages.
Outside of the working world, I spend my time with my husband and daughter along with our Yorkie, Griffey. My husband is a Special Education educator and coach. My daughter is currently in 6th grade.
