Counseling

Welcome Back Northlake Students to the 2023-2024 school year. I'm excited to begin a new journey with you!

This is my seventh year in the Tooele School District, and my first year as a School Counselor. I have worked as a Behavior Specialist and as Youth in Custody Director. I am living proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks and that we are all lifetime learners. I completed my Masters in School Counseling, with an emphasis in mental health and trauma in 2020 from Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho. I am excited about the opportunity to work full time within a school.

I am a firm believer that “Every Child Needs a Champion” and needs to have regular contact with a “Charismatic Adult”, that is an adult from whom they can draw strength! I believe in teaching grit and resilience. Not in solving students’ problems but in helping them to find their own solutions!

I’m excited to join the “Knights” family. Remember that the Knights of old were Champions and Dragon Slayers. I look forward to meeting all the students! I am happy to meet with parents anytime to discuss your child’s needs.
