Introducing Our School Counselor
welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I am fully committed to
serving the students, staff, teachers and parents of WHES by
enriching each studentís academic achievement as well as creating a
safe environment for learning.
I moved to Virginia eleven years ago having originated from Minnesota.
I worked as a respiratory therapist for 10 years, during which I
obtained my Bachelorís degree in Psychology and Masterís in Guidance
and Counseling, both, from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Prior to
arriving at Hanover County, I had the privilege of serving the
students of Tappahannock Elementary School in Essex County. I
also completed an internship at Parkview Elementary School in
Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I hope to bring a sense of
creativity to the already dynamic and accomplished staff here at WHES. I look forward to working with you and your student
throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to contact me at
any time if I can be of assistance.
