This year marks my ninth year as a Licensed Professional Counselor. After working in private practice, Iam thrilled to have a school counselor position at West Ridge. My previous teaching experience includes teaching special education at Westlake High School and teaching Social Studies at Hay's CISD's Alternative Learning Center. I received a full scholarship in track and field from the University of Southern California where I earned both a B.A. in History and a M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction. After USC, I attended Texas State and earned a M.Ed. in Counseling and Guidance. In my free time, I love to go to movies and live theater. I have written and produced two plays, and I'm currently working on a novel. I look forward to hearing all of your stories and helping make West Ridge a memorable experience!
Working with West Ridge students, parents, and staff is a gift! It is great to be a part of one of the finest middle schools in t
I attended Texas Tech University and I'm a proud Red Raider! I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education there. I also attended the University of North Texas, where I earned a Masters degree in Guidance and Counseling Education. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and worked in a private counseling practice in Arlington, Texas. Working in a school setting is definitely my preference.
Spending time with family and close friends is my favorite pastime. I also enjoy interior decorating, exercising, and touring the Hill Country on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle!
I attended The University of Texas and earned my under graduate degree in Psychology then returned to get my Masters in Social Work. After graduating with my masters I worked in a private practice setting and then went to work for EISD as a Special Education Counselor. I worked for EISD for the next 17 years and then went into private practice and also worked with the Travis County Sheriff's Department. I returned to EISD in August of 2007 after being gone for 3 years and I am excited about being back working with the great students and wonderful faculty at WRMS.
I am married and we have a daughter at UT and a son who is in middle school. My wife is also a Social Worker at the Capital School where she does play therapy . I enjoy playing soccer, fishing and riding bikes with my son.
