B.S. in Child Development and Teaching from Michigan State University

M.Ed. in School Counseling from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


I worked for thirty+ years for the State of NC with jobs that impacted adolescents including juvenile probation, Guardian ad Litem, and School Counseling. I worked as a high school guidance counselor for 15 years at Chapel Hill High School and 5 years at Carrboro High School. The Chapel Hill-Carrboro School System, centered between UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, NC State University, and the Research Triangle Park, is a strongly academic school system. I enjoyed the personal and social aspects of counseling as well as the academic and career counseling work. I have written many college letters of recommendation and helped numerous students work through the college admissions process.

Current work:

For the past several years, I have been working privately as a college selection specialist. I do this work locally and nationally and have loved helping students throughout the country find their fit among all of the wonderful colleges and universities throughout the US.
