    I graduated from Washington State University in 2002 with a degree in Communications, Public Relations. I worked in the Admissions office at Saint Martin's University for a few years while also working on obtaining my Master's in Education degree and Guidance and Counseling certification. Before coming to THS, I worked as a Counselor at Centralia Middle School and Tumwater Middle school.

    I am very passionate about working with students and feel that these years set the tone for developing the knowledge, attitudes and skill necessary for them to become healthy, competent and confident learners. I believe that my professional experience, my academic preparation, my passion for education, and my heartfelt desire to help children will create an environment in which all students will feel they can achieve anything they set out to do. My goal every day is to make a positive impact. I am excited for the opportunity to make that impact at Tumwater High School.

    Contact me – I am here Monday-Friday from 7:10 – 2:40.  Please stop by and see me anytime! I would love to meet you.

    Welcome!
    I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in 1996 with a degree in English, and my teaching certification.  I taught English at THS from 1996-2000 and was the Yearbook Advisor for 2 of those years.  In 2000 I was hired as a School Counselor at THS, and worked full time until 2004 when we had our first child.  I have been working part time at THS since then, and am grateful for my place in the T-Bird family.
    Thanks for checking out our website!

    I started at SPSCC and then transferred to Pacific Lutheran University where I earned my undergraduate degree in Social Work. After eight years of working in college admission I headed back to college and received my Masters of Education in School Counseling from City University. During the few moments my three kids are not keeping me totally busy, you can often find me tapping my feet to Irish music, daydreaming about the time I rode the Hogwarts Express (true story), or trying to master the ultimate chocolate chip cookie (if you have the recipe let me know). Please stop by my office whenever to say hi, challenge me to an Irish jig-off, or share your family's secret chocolate chip cookie recipe!
