Hello Summerwind STEM Academy Students and Families!

I am your school counselor. 

I was born and raised in Idaho. I love to hike with my black lab, Nausicaa. I also enjoy gardening, crocheting, and baking. 

As your child's school counselor, I am here to support their social, emotional, and behavioral needs. I also teach classroom lessons on emotions, social skills, and how to stay safe in unsafe situations. 

During the school year, I run small group counseling sessions on topics such as anger, anxiety, changing families, grief and loss, and friendship skills. I also provide short term one-on-one support for students and can help direct parents to community resources and community counseling. 

Please fell free to email me or call me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
