Welcome to the Counseling Office!

I am excited to be the 7-12 school counselor for Houston High School! My goal is to help ALL students to experience success while at Houston High School and as they prepare for their plans beyond high school.

My background includes growing up in Melrose, WI. I attended Melrose-Mindoro High School from K-12. Following high school, I received my bachelor's degree from Viterbo University in Psychology in 1999. I then worked for six years as a Native American student liaison in the La Crosse and Black River Falls school districts. While working, I completed my master's degree in K-12 school counseling from Winona State University in 2004. Following this, I started as a school counselor at Houston High School in 2005. I am fortunate to be a part of a supportive community and school and enjoy each day with the students at HHS!

My husband, Jason and I have 3 sons-Trey, Owen and Oliver. I enjoy fishing, kayaking, skiing, riding motorcycle and snowmobiling when I am not at school.

I hope you find the information at this site helpful. If you have any suggestions on additional information you would like to see, please let me know.
