Salutations! I am so excited to start my 6th school year as the counselor at Schwegler! After finishing a Masters in Social Work degree at The University of Kansas I went to work as a Family Preservation therapist in Topeka. In December 2013 I was hired to be the counselor at Schwegler. I grew up in Garden City with my parents and older brother. I am currently serving on the CI3T, Building Leadership Team, Health Resource Team, and the Equity Team. I also service on the Equity Advisory Council for the district. My role in the school is to support students mental health needs, crisis intervention, All students have the opportunity to have a small group session with me where we will work on mindfulness, calming strategies, and other aplicable social skills. I am truly dedicated to making Schwegler the best school in Lawrence! Where learning and fun always get done! Outside of school I enjoy giving my time to the Lawrence St. Patrick's Day parade comitte, volunteering at Ballard Community Services, and watching KU sports. Rock Chalk!
