About Me

Bachelor of Arts - Psychology - University of Arkansas
Master of Education- Secondary Counseling - East Central University

Hello! I am a Poteau High School Graduate and new 7th -12th grade counselor. After high school I attended Carl Albert State College and then transferred to The University of Arkansas (Go Hogs!) and studied psychology. I knew I wanted to enter counseling, but still had a love for education, so I decided to pursue a Master of Education in Secondary Counseling through ECU to get the best of both worlds. I am in my 4th year as one of the coaches for the Poteau Pom Squad and have helped coordinate the Miss PHS pageant since 2013. My husband teaches and coaches at Poteau as well. When we are not home spending time with our kitties we love traveling and spending time outdoors.
