This school year, begins my 12th year at Magnolia West and my 19th year in Magnolia ISD. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was a special education teacher and diagnostician. I earned my bachelors degree from Sam Houston State University and masters degree from Texas A&M University.


This school year I will serve as the 11th grade counselor.  I am looking forward to a great school year!!
