I was born and raised in  Kansas. I attended the University of Kansas where I earned my bachelor's degree in Spanish & Portuguese literature and language. I earned my master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Bowie State University (Maryland) while my family was stationed in Germany due to my husband's Army service. I have 4 children that attend schools in KISD. I taught Spanish at the middle school and high school level for 11 years. This is my second year at Willow Springs as a guidance counselor. I’m very excited to be working with our students.
