Welcome back! During the 2018-2019 school year, I will be the school counselor for first, third, and fifth grade students. In 1988, I graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Education. My master’s degree is in School Counseling from Florida Atlantic University. This is my 23rd year in education, with the last 16 in school counseling. This is my 8th year counseling at Birney. I grew up in Florida and then moved to Georgia in 1996. I have been married 29 years to my wonderful husband. We have a daughter in high school and a son in college at UGA. When I'm not at school, I love to walk our dog, play with our cat, volunteer at our daughter's school, and travel with the family. I'm so excited to be working at Birney again this year!
