Hello!

I am a certificated school counselor with an accounting degree who is able to offer a variety of services.

I have my Master's in Counseling with a School Counseling Credential, which is current in California and a pending application for the ESA in Washington State. I was a middle school guidance counselor for 6 years. If you have a disorganized middle school student in need of study or organization skills, I am very qualified to help with this. In addition, I have completed the Academic Life Coaching program which provides structured sessions to help Middle and High School students with study skills, motivation, and developing a purpose as well as an action plan to improve academic success. This program works well for students that lack connection to their education and their future and need help learning to take responsibility for their learning and their future.

I was also a teaching assistant with my own section of 70 students at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I taught undergraduate Accounting Classes. I have passed the FAR and Audit portions of the CPA exam. I earned a B.A. in Psychology and a B.A. in Business Economics with an Accounting Emphasis from UC Santa Barbara in 2002.

I also tutored privately and as an employee of the University of California. I am able to tutor in all accounting subjects.

As a current school district employee, I have a federal department of justice background check and fingerprinting, current TB test, and whooping cough vaccine. I am CPR Certified in adult, infant and child. I have worked with students with special needs as well. I have intermediate skills in excel, and can type 70+ wpm and 10 key by touch.

Please contact me and let me know how I can be of assistance!

Accounting

I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California Santa Barbara in Business Economics with an Accounting Emphasis. I taught at the University level as a teaching assistant for the Accounting Department for 4 quarters as well as at the University Tutoring Center. I passed the FARE and Audit portions of the CPA exam after working as a public accountant for two years. I now work as a Fiscal accountant at a school district.

ADD/ADHD

I am a certificated school counselor with experience working directly with students with ADD/ADHD and their families. I have also worked directly with special education teachers to develop learning plans and interventions for students with ADD/ADHD. Some strategies involve setting timers, breaking work into small pieces, and managing work load to only the smallest amounts necessary to achieve the learning goals. I have acted as an advocate for students when it comes to having their workloads reduced with teachers as well.

Business

I have a B.A. in business economics with an accounting emphasis. I have worked as a public accountant, compliance auditor, and non-profit fiscal accountant (five years combined experience). I have taught accounting at the undergraduate level at University of California, Santa Barbara.

Special Needs

As a credentialed school counselor in both Washington and California, I have worked extensively with students with special needs including behavior plans, IEP's, and direct support with study skills and academic learning support.

Study Skills

I am a credentialed school counselor with six years of experience. I have taught lessons in study skills in both my own afterschool class for at risk students and in-class instruction. I am also an academic life coach, with education and training to help with time management, study skills, organization and motivation.

I have a master's in counseling and a B.A. in psychology and business economics with an accounting emphasis.
