Master of Science in School Counseling from Southern Adventist University


This is my 3rd year at Whitwell Middle School, and my 5th year working as a school counselor. I love this school, and the kids. I do weekly guidance lessons on subjects such as bullying, internet safety, study skills, social skills and friendship making skills. I have a passion for helping students plan for their future with career and college planning.

I also do individual and group counseling.


Proud mom to Ben and Lewis who are freshman at the University of Tennessee/Knoxville. Go Vols! They are identical twins, and most of the time I can tell them apart! I was born and raised in Cleveland, TN, where I now reside. I moved back to Cleveland a few years ago after living in Atlanta, GA and Huntsville, AL.

I love animals and have a house full, 3 dogs and 6 cats. In my spare time ( ha ha ) I love to play golf, read, work in my yard, and travel. I would love to live on the beach someday, and look forward to the yearly beach trip!
