I welcome you all to our school counseling website and hope that you will visit often.
This is my eleventh year as a School Counselor at NKHS, however I have been involved with the school system for over 24 years as a mom, community member and substitute. I work with students whose last names begin with the letters O-Z.
My husband and I are originally from Williamsburg and have lived in New Kent since 1985. We have three children, all of whom graduated from New Kent High School. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, working in the yard, spending time at the beach or river, taking pictures, and volunteering at Dream Catchers Therapeutic Riding Center as well as Proclaiming Grace Outreach.
My students will often hear me ask them about Plan B so I share a favorite saying of mine:
Life is all about how you handle Plan B. It's the true test of character.
As a School Counselor, I am here to advocate for and assist each of my students as they complete their journey through high school. My goal is to help students make well informed decisions as they move through high school and prepare for post high school opportunities. I can provide information that promotes growth in all areas of school counseling; academic, career, and personal/social. Services available through the school counseling department that support and empower the students of NKHS include but are not limited to:
* Individual meetings with students
* Collaboration with teachers, students and parents
* Counselor Corner-Two Wednesdays a month the counselors are available to talk with students during each lunch in the cafeteria
* Classroom Guidance
* Course Planning
* Career Planning
* Scholarship and Financial Aid Information
* Support for students with IEP's and 504's
* Student and Parent Workshops (sponsored by the PTSO)
Parents, I welcome your thoughts as they relate to your student's needs and our school counseling program. I look forward to working with you to ensure a positive and productive academic experience for your student.
My office hours are Monday through Friday 7:20am-3:00pm Phone: 804-966-8507
