    I am excited to be working at Opequon Elementary School as your child’s school counselor.  The guidance program is designed to support and expand on the services offered by the classroom teacher and to provide each student the opportunity to reach his or her potential. Students will have guidance class every other week. Additionally, students may be seen individually and/or in a group setting.  Please feel free to contact me anytime you feel I can be of assistance with difficulties your child may be experiencing. My door is always open to help meet the needs of students and their families.

    Hello Opequon Families!

    This is my second year at Opequon Elementary. This is my 16th year as a school counselor, and I'm very excited to meet and work with you and your family. I am originally from Fort Ashby, West Virginia, and moved to Berkeley County in 2007. I live with my husband and two sons, who are in 8th and 5th grade. If I'm not here at school, you will find me hanging out at the baseball field, reading a good book, drinking coffee with a friend, or relaxing with the rest of my family. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to meeting you!
