About the Counselor
I am very excited to be a part of the Gator family, I am looking forward to all the wonderful things that are in store for the Gator Family this year!
I taught sixth grade Science (Life, Earth, and Physical) for three years in the MS Delta from 2001-2004. Those were some very exciting and rewarding years in my life. I also have a fourteen year history in Mental Health Therapy, 2004- 2018, but am excited to be able to experience the academic side of counseling. However, my mental health roots run deep and I am sure it will be utilized the same..:)
I am a proud 2004 graduate of Alcorn State University, with a Master's of Science Degree in Guidance Education. I love my Alcorn State family, the home of the BRAVES! # Back2BackSWACEastChamps #BraveStrong
I also received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Alcorn State University in 2001 in education and taught 6th Grade Science for three years, 2001-2004.
