I was born and raised here in Birmingham to a very loving and supportive family.  I am the middle child of 3 girls.  I have been happily married for 22 years and I have 2 great kids!  Both of my children are Freshman this year; my daughter just graduated and is attending UAB, and my son is in 9th grade this year.  Our family also has a cute, fur-ball Morkie named Maddy who is always a bundle of energy.  I love to spend family time at the lake RV camping, swimming, and boating, as well as traveling to the beach, cooking/baking, watching comedy movies, and shopping.    

I have been a counselor for over 19 years now, and I am excited to start my 12th year at Paine as the South- side Counselor.  I am here to support our students, teachers, and parents however I can.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any assistance.   I look forward to a great school year.
