I received my Bachelors degree majoring in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Eastern Illinois University.
I also earned my Masters of Psychology and Community Counseling from Eastern Illinois University. I completed my EDS degree in Educational Psychology and School Counseling at Tennessee Tech University.




I have worked at DCHS for 7 years. I have worked in the counseling field for 23 years. Prior to DCHS, I have worked in Trousdale County, Putnam County, Plataeu Mental Health center, Tennessee Tech University and in the state of Illinois.


I am the 9th & 10th grade counselor here at DCHS. I am also the Junior Beta sponsor and the 504 coordinator.

I have been married to my husband Tim for 24 years. We have two wonderful children. Our daughter, Kelsey who is 16, is a Junior at Upperman High School in Baxter. Our son Logan is 13 and an 8th grader at Dekalb Middle School.
