Hello! I am happy to be the school counselor at Beehive Academy. I graduated from the University of Utah in Human Development and Family Studies, and got my M.S. degree in School Counseling at Utah State University. I have experience at both traditional public and public charter schools, with all ages K-12.

I have received a student award for “best laugh” and I love when students stop by my office to say hello. I value each individual student I work with, and it’s important to me that all students feel welcome and cared about at Beehive. In my free time I enjoy spending time in nature, birding, photography, reading and traveling (pre-COVID, of course).
