About Your School Counselor

  • I graduated from Ashland University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and completed my Master's Degree in School Counseling at Cleveland State University. This is my 16th year with Berea City Schools, and my 11th as a school counselor. Prior to working in Berea, I taught at a private school for 4 years. I live in Olmsted Falls with my husband and three children. I love to read, take walks in the Metroparks, listen to all kinds of music, and root for the Browns! 


For Students

  • If you need to see me, fill out a request form. Those forms can be found hanging on the whiteboard outside my office.
     
    Lunch bunches will be starting soon! If you are not involved in a lunch bunch and would like to be, see me to let me know. You can find the sign up sheet hanging on the whiteboard outside my office!

For Parents

  • School Counselors have the opportunity to be in contact with students in different ways including classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling and individual counseling. Counselors are available to parents to provide consultation and/or referrals if necessary. Please feel free to contact your school counselor with any questions or concerns about your child or the school counseling program.

    Students may be referred to me in several ways:
    • Parent Request
    • Staff Member Referral
    • Student Self-Referral (request forms are in an envelope on the bulletin board outside the office.)
    • Counselor Invitation
