I received my bachelor's degree in Biology with a Secondary Education Certification from Quincy University in 2012. As I was working with more and more high school students in the classroom, as much as I enjoyed teaching, I felt drawn toward helping them with the many other challenges life presents outside of academics. Therefore, I decided to stay at Quincy University to pursue a master's degree in School Counseling which I completed in 2015.
Since that time I have been counseling children ages 3-18 for a small public school district in West Central Illinois. I have loved the unique aspects of working with such a wide variety of age groups and I am delighted to continue that work with the British International School of Chicago- South Loop!
I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, and I am so excited to be returning home to family and a city that I love after taking a 12 year hiatus. In my spare time I enjoy jogging with my dog, cooking, and spending every minute I can with family.
This school is different to all others I have worked at because it is not surrounded by cows and cornfields. Aside from topography, the British International School of Chicago- South Loop is also different in the cultural diversity of its students. The students I have worked with in the past have come from small towns, many of them growing up on farms. I am excited about working with students from many different walks of life.
