Greeting from the PHS counselor corner! I graduated from the small town of Bokoshe America. I made the choice in sixth grade I wanted to be a teacher, change the world and the rest is history. I started my teaching career in the classroom in 2008 teaching Family and Consumer Sciences. I currently can be found in the counselor's corner at PHS. I married my husband back in 2012 and we have one son, Sawyer. We enjoy a Cardinals baseball game, and will always cheer for whom ever is playing the Cubs. Education and mental health are my passions and in the current position I get the best of both worlds.
