I graduated from USM with a masters degree in school counseling in 2013 after several years in social work. In my free time I enjoy watching my four boys play sports, train my rescue lab puppy, reading, hiking, and kayaking. I have worked in many development stages and I find the middle school age the most fun and fascinating!

I received my masters degree in school counseling from Husson University in 2014. I have spent many years coaching both middle school girls soccer and high school boys tennis in my hometown of Belfast, Maine.I love to spend my free time playing with my puppy, spending time at my family's cabin up North, and traveling whenever the opportunity presents itself. My favorite thing about the middle school age is their love and understanding of life. They are just coming into their own personality and it's always interesting to see what that is.
