When did you begin working in the field of education?
I began working as a school counselor in 2005 for the School Corporation of Daleville in Daleville, IN.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the Options team?
 I am excited about the one on one opportunities I will have with the students. I look forward to getting to know them and their families and being able to meet their needs as the years progress. I am also excited to interact with the faculty and staff to help me know the families better in this non traditional setting.

What do you enjoy outside of Options?
Well I have a small zoo of animals, mostly dogs and I love being outside with them in my big yard. I also love to hang out with my friends and family and play cards or board games. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting, crafting and reading. I love to solve puzzles and work outside in my flower garden during the summer.
