I have been a member of the Leyden staff since 2015.  I am happy to have started my profession as a school counselor at such a wonderful school district. Currently, I am the small group and data coordinator. I am also one the Varsity Cheerleading coaches at Leyden, which allows me to continue to develop my love for the sport. Lastly, I sponsor Mindfulness club, On Common Ground and the Sharing the Dream club.  

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my family and friends, specifically my neice and nephew. I also enjoy working out, scuba diving, traveling, PIZZA and enjoying a good laugh.
