I am a professional school counselor at JY Joyner Magnet Elementary. I was born and raised in Reidsville, NC to amazing and wonderful parents. I received my undergraduate degree in Business Education from North Carolina A&T State University (Aggie Pride!) I taught high school computer courses in Guilford and Wake Counties (NC) and really enjoyed the opportunity to teach and work with young adults. I received my master's degree in School Counseling from North Carolina Central University and have a Post-Master's Certificate in Advanced School Counseling from UNC-Greensboro. I am extremely happy to work at such a great school like JY Joyner!
I enjoy reading, exercising, listening to music and traveling! I absolutely love using and learning about technology and it's incredible uses. I have presented at various conferences and workshops on the uses of technology in school counseling programs.
I thoroughly enjoy working with students and am elated to play an important role in shaping students with unlimited potential! I hope that they learn as much from me as I learn from them, they are absolutely amazing!
