I grew up in Portland, TX outside of Corpus Christi and then moved to Irving and graduated from MacArthur High School.  Next, I graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Psychology.  My education continued at the University Of North Texas with a Masters in Education.  After my degrees, I worked to become a Licensed Professional Counselor with the state of Texas.  All of my jobs throughout the years have involved working with children with my first job as a secondary social science teacher at Brock ISD.  I have worked as a counselor at a runaway shelter and also as a Juvenile Detention Officer.  Currently, I have been a therapist for 18 years working with families and children.  Now, professional school counseling has been my career for 18 years, over 16 of the years have been at Kirkpatrick Middle School.  My favorite memory from middle school is finding a great group of friends and fishing with them on the weekends.  Since my junior high school building was hurricane proofed, it had no windows in the whole building.  Texas History is the class I liked the most.  My passion has always been working with kids and all the adventures that result.
