    This is my fourth year at Battlefield Middle School and I am excited to be working here as a Warrior!  I have 19 years of experience as a School Counselor and teacher from Caroline County Public Schools and Richmond City Public Schools.  I enjoy working with all students to help them be successful not only in the classroom, but outside in the community as well.  Here at Battlefield I will be working with students during Classroom Guidance lessons, individual counseling sessions, and also small group sessions.  I have two children, two dogs, a cat, and a turtle who keep me busy when I am not at school.  Please contact me any time if you have a question or concern about your child. I am here to help!

    I am excited to begin my second year with the Battlefield MS family.  This is my 13th year as a school counselor and I love what I get to do each day.  It is my belief that with positive connections and relationships every child can be successful.  As a School Counselor, my primary resposibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students.  I look forward to offering support to the students, families, and staff.  I work with students in a variety of settings that include individual counseling, small groups and classroom lessons.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or to discuss any concerns you may have about your child.

    I am excited to begin my second year as a Battlefield Middle School Warrior!  I have 14 years of experience as a School Counselor, first in Southern Illinois and now here in Virginia. I have worked at both the elementary and middle school levels.  I know, not just as a counselor but first hand as a parent, the stresses which can accompany navigating the school age years.  I hope to have the opportunity to assist your family if the need arises.  I will be working with students individually, in small groups, and in school counseling classroom lessons to encourage each student's personal, social, and academic growth.  I look forward to meeting you throughout the school year and feel fortunate to be a part of your child's middle school journey.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.
