Hello!   Thank you for visiting my website and welcome.  As you may already know, General Wayne Elementary School is a fantastic place to be and it has been my pleasure to be a part of this community as a school counselor since 2005.  My educational experience includes a Master’s in Educational Counseling  from West Chester University and a Law Degree from Villanova (the law degree came is indeed a journey!).   While my school counseling certification is for grades K-12, working with elementary students, their teachers and their families is where my heart is.  Prior to working in schools, I worked as a mobile therapist and behavior specialist in homes with children and families.    

Along with this professional experience, my personal experience as a mother of four children (all Great Valley graduates) emphasizes the importance of family and makes working with GWES families relatable and rewarding.  Parenting is a large umbrella of responsibility which can feel overwhelming at times and my goal is to ensure our families feel supported during their elementary school experience.   

As the school counselor, I enjoy supporting the social, emotional, and behavioral well-being of all of our students so that they can best access their learning style and have a successful outcome at school.   I look forward to getting to know and supporting all of the students at GWES!   If we have not met, please feel free to stop by the office and say "hello".
