Hello! I am thrilled to be a part of the OHS staff and to have the opportunity to work with our incoming students. It is going to be a GREAT year!
I have been working in education since 1998 and in West Ada since 2001. I began at a middle school then made the jump to high school counseling and never looked back! In 2016 the State of Idaho decided that high schools need a counselor to help students with post-high school plans. I jumped at the chance to take on this role. Yay, Idaho! I have the best job!
I am married to my college sweetheart and have three boys. Two (twins) graduated from RMHS in 2021 and are headed to Boise State (Go Broncos!) and the GIMM Program. The experience of helping them has increased my knowledge of the process (admissions, scholarships, financial aid, housing, food plans, parking permits... I could go on!) and I am excited to share this with my OHS students and families!
