Hello! The 2020-2021 school year begins my 25th year in education - all within the BISD. My experiences as a social studies teacher, AP U.S. History teacher, Peer Assistance & Leadership teacher, District Lead Social Studies Teacher, and both a high school and middle school counselor have provided me with valuable insight about the way students learn, behave, and succeed. My role as a school counselor has truly been rewarding and I am excited to be working with our BMSN students, teachers, the administrative team, and parents who are vested in educational success. 

A little about me - I have been married to my husband, Bryan, for nearly 25 years. We are the proud parents of two children, John and Sarah. Both attended Curington Elementary School, BMSN, and BHS. John is a senior at the University of Notre Dame and Sarah is a first-year student following in her brother’s footsteps at ND. I attended Texas State and received a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in history and earned my M.A. in Counseling from UTSA. Our family enjoys skiing in the mountains of Colorado and we LOVE college football! Go Irish! 

My Why: To help develop AMAZING individuals that have the courage to stand up, stand out, and show kindness to all they encounter. I hope to show students the importance of respecting each other no matter our differences.

Hello! The 2020-2021 school year marks a special year for me as I excitedly joined the Boerne Middle School counseling team as a first-year counselor. Prior to my role as counselor, I taught Middle School English Language Arts for 7 years at NISD in San Antonio, TX., and taught High School English at Incarnate Word High School for 3 years, including coaching the Speech & Debate Team and advancing them at local and state tournaments. I attended UTSA and received a B.A in English and earned my M.A. in Counseling from Angelo State University.  

 

I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX and enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, Declan age 4, and Zane age 1, who keep me quite active. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, going to the beach, and occasional travel.   

 

I am dedicated to helping students develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to grow up as healthy, caring, and responsible individuals.

Hello! I am so excited to be returning to BMSN for the 2020-2021 school year. This is my 18th year as a school counselor, the last 2 in Boerne ISD. Prior to Boerne, I worked at North East ISD for 15 years.

 

I have been married for 27 years.  We are the parents of 3 beautiful children. My oldest, Kayla, just got married in September and is now working as a nurse in San Antonio. My middle daughter, Leah, attends Howard Payne University where she plays on the women’s soccer team. My baby just turned 12 and gets to come to school with mom.

 

Our family enjoys camping, kayaking, boating, anything outdoors. Of course, we also spend a lot of time on the soccer field. I look forward to working with the students, teachers and parents at BMSN (Go Greyhounds).
