2016-17 school year will be my first year as a K-8 school counselor! I am originally from Pella and met my husband, Jay, in high school. We married in May, 2012 and our son, Klayton, was born February, 2016. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, spending time around our fire pit, and going on walks.
I am lucky enough to get to serve 4 schools in the surrounding area. My goal as school counselor is to work with parents and staff to help all students grow and develop academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Part of my role as school counselor is to go into each classroom K-8 and teach from a guidance curriculum. The other part of my role is to meet with students individually and/or in small groups as needed.
I am looking forward to working with students, staff, and parents this school year!
