Hi Grizzlies! I am the counselor for students with last names L-Z. I am looking forward to working with students and their families to ensure that students are succeeding academically, socially, and emotionally. My goal is to help students be their “best self”.

I am a native Central Texan. I graduated from Harker Heights High School and completed both my Bachelor and Master degrees at Texas A&M University-Central Texas. I began my education career as a teacher in Belton ISD where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and was also the cheerleading coach. I then came over to Killeen ISD and served as a counselor at Cedar Valley Elementary School. This will be my second year at Union Grove and I am excited to continue working with middle schoolers.

My husband and I have two daughters. We really enjoy traveling as a family. Our most recent visit was to Yellowstone National Park, where we saw a Grizzly mama bear and her two cubs in the wild! I’m looking forward to a successful year. Please reach out if you need anything.
