About The Counselor

This is my 20th year at WPS. I enjoy working with the teachers and staff, parents, and especially the students. I graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and received my Master of Education and Educational Specialist degrees in school counseling from the University of South Carolina. Saturdays in the fall I'll be wearing orange and yelling "Go Tigers!" My husband and I live in Laurens with our children Brian and Ruthie and our dog, Daisy. My husband teaches science courses and coaches at Laurens District 55 High School. Brian attends Laurens High School and loves being a Raider, but Ruthie is at Woodruff Middle and loves the Wolverines! They both enjoy playing sports. 

My Counseling Program and WPS Mission

The primary focus of school counseling and guidance programs at the elementary level is prevention. My goal is to help students develop more positive interpersonal and intrapersonal skills... assisting them in becoming happier, more effective individuals and learners. My school counseling and guidance program is for every student at WPS; therefore, my services are designed to reach every student through developmental, preventative education, and responsive services.
