    I am a native of Pittsburgh, PA, but Georgia has been home for 25 years.  I have two amazing daughters who graduated from Dutchtown High School and now attend Clayton State University.  I began my teaching career with Atlanta Public Schools where I taught English, and later worked in several other metro Atlanta school districts before earning my Counseling Degree from Columbus State University.  I've worked in Henry County Schools for 14 years at only two schools (Dutchtown Elementary & Austin Road Middle).  I believe that as an educator, the care I provide students each day should mirror what I expect from others as they serve my own children.  I love to travel, sports, write and on my bucket list is the plan to skydive!!!!  I completed my first manuscript in 2015 which supports my role as a Counselor by encouraging families despite the dynamics to work together as a unit for their children.  
    I look forward to working with your family this school year!!!
