Hello Panthers! I am so excited to be in Gwinnett County and serve as a School Counselor at Parkview. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Appalachian State University in 2015. I played four years of collegiate basketball for Appalachian State and continued as a Graduate Assistant Coach while earning my Masters in School Counseling in 2017. Afterwards, I moved to Connecticut with my husband and I worked in Special Education at Plainville High School. This spring, we moved back to Georgia to be near family and I couldn't be happier that I landed at Parkview. I believe that school counseling practices in high schools matter and they contribute greatly to the atmosphere, culture and educational outcomes of a school. I will use my role as a counselor to positively impact the administration, faculty and students here at Parkview.  
 
Fun Facts: I really enjoy listening to music, reading a good book, and being adventurous outside. My favorite times are spent with family and close friends. I also will be coaching girls basketball this year at PHS. (Come out and support!)

Hello Panther Family! This is my 2nd year counseling at Parkview High School, and I'm so thrilled to be a part of the best high school in the nation for another wonderful school year! I served as the Peer Leadership Coordinator in 2018-2019 and will continue to do so in 2019-2020.  

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Georgia State University (The real GSU – sorry Kim and Leigh!!) in 2015, and played collegiate softball at GSU from 2011-2014. Shortly after graduating I went into the mental health field at the Devereaux Georgia Treatment Network in Kennesaw. During that time I quickly realized that I had a passion to work with adolescents and wanted to serve kiddos in a preventative manner. In 2018 I went back to Georgia State to obtain my Master of Education in School Counseling to serve this purpose. I am a Nationally Board Certified Counselor, and certified in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training). I’m also a member of the American School Counselor Association and the Georgia School Counselor Association.  As a counselor I'm a firm believer in the importance of mental wellness for student success, and I approach helping my students from a holistic perspective.

Fun facts about me: I enjoy photography, hiking, coed softball, and in the summer you can find me at the lake or the beach! In 2016 I cheered on the Tomahawk Team for Atlanta Braves, and I’m a “true to Atlanta” sports fan. I have a fur-child named Tucker, and I love spending time with my 2 nieces and nephew.

Hello, I am currently in my sixth year as a School Counselor here at Parkview. I attended Georgia Southern University (Go Eagles!) where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Child and Family Development and my Master of Education degree in Counselor Education, with an emphasis in School Counseling. I began my career as an Academic Advisor at the University of Georgia in the College of Education where I worked for three years. During those three years I was able to earn certificates in the following fields: Academic Advising, Diversity & Inclusion, and Emergency Preparedness Conflict De-Escalation. I am a member of the American School Counselor Association and the Georgia School Counselors Association. I am married to my wonderful husband who is a teacher with GCPS and we have two children. I am excited to continue helping students through the high school journey.

I am originally from Western New York. I received my B.A. in Psychology from the State University of New York (SUNY) College at Fredonia. I earned my M.S. in Counselor Education from Canisius College. I also attended Walden University where I finished all but my dissertation in a Health Psychology Ph.D. program.

I began my career in 1996 at North Forsyth High School in Cumming, GA. I worked there until 1998 when I decided I would go back to Western New York to pursue a Physical Therapy degree. After arriving on campus, I decided that counseling was my true passion so I returned to Georgia and took a job at the Cottage School (a private school for students with mild learning disabilities). In 1999, I returned to North Forsyth High School where I stayed until 2006. During my time there, I was a Lanier Technical College Advisory Committee Member. I was an Instructional Extension Coordinator where I wrote a yearly proposal for zero period classes for students needing to make up credits. I served as an SAT Prep Early Morning Class Instructor, a Math SAT Teacher, and an SAT Coordinator.

In 2006, I came to Gwinnett County where I started out as a High School Graduation Coach at Phoenix High School. In 2011, I went to work for GIVE West Middle School (half-time) and Parkview High School (half-time). I have now been at Parkview High School full-time for 6 years.

I love Parkview High School because of the students and the parents. I find so many of the parents are very supportive of the educators here. The students are respectful and eager to take advice that we may offer. The students engage in rigorous classes and are always ready for the next challenge. I look forward to working with you all!

This is my 27th year as a Parkview Panther and I am looking forward to a great school year. I graduated from Georgia Southern with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education (Social Studies). Upon college graduation, I was offered a job in the corporate world and stayed there for 10 years. Although I gained valuable experience and insight during this employment, I missed what I was truly called to do…to work with high school students. I returned back to college and attended Georgia State University where I earned both a Master’s and Specialist of Education Degrees (School Counseling). I then had the privilege of joining Parkview in 1993 where I created the College and Career program and enjoyed assisting students. In 1994, I changed positions to be a Counselor.

While at Parkview, I have served as the Counseling Department Chair from 2002-2015, the Beta Club sponsor for 15 years, and also served on the School Council. In addition, I am a member of several other school committees and was selected to serve on two Gwinnett county Cross Functional Action Teams.

I am a member of the Gwinnett County Counselor’s Association, the Georgia School Counselor’s Association, the American School Counselors Association and the professional division of Future Business Leaders of America.

I enjoy working at the BEST high school in the nation!
