    I received my undergraduate in psychology, from Moravian College, where I was also a proud member of the football team. Following Moravian, I pursued and completed my Master's in Education at Liberty University. I have been at Smith School since 2019. I look forward to serving as a friendly and trusted resource for all students, staff, families, and community members.  I pride myself on being a transparent communicator and an empathetic listener. I meet with students individually and in small groups, conduct classroom lessons, meet with parents, collaborate with teachers and staff, and consult with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all members of our Ann Blanche Smith School family.  I work hard to collaborate with staff and community to promote a healthy and moral foundation and teach social skills that include but are not limited to problem-solving, self-regulation, fair play, and character development. As a school counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students.  I am truly grateful to be a member of the Hillsdale community and look forward to having an excellent 2020-21 school year!
