Bio

Hi All! I am currently employed as Counselor in Orange County, at a local school district. I have worked in the classroom and now as an administrator for over 8 years. I studied people's patterns of behavior and the brain in my undergraduate degree (B.A. in Psychology) and refined my counseling skills in graduate school (M.S. in Counseling). I graduated in 2012, and recently completed my PPS Credential authorizing my work as a school counselor focusing on college, career, and...

Hi All! I am currently employed as Counselor in Orange County, at a local school district. I have worked in the classroom and now as an administrator for over 8 years. I studied people's patterns of behavior and the brain in my undergraduate degree (B.A. in Psychology) and refined my counseling skills in graduate school (M.S. in Counseling). I graduated in 2012, and recently completed my PPS Credential authorizing my work as a school counselor focusing on college, career, and social-emotional health.
I love working with students and families to navigate the college application process, and developing a plan for student's who aren't quite sure where they are headed yet. My previous student's have been accepted throughout the UC and CSU systems including: UC Irvine, UC Riverside, UC Davis, and UCLA.

In between my positions within school districts, I took a three year hiatus to work as an administrator in a non-profit organization focusing on developing programs for those with special needs. I have experience with a variety of emotional, behavioral, and health issues within student populations. I believe that every student has the right to learn and grow as an individual, and I love to facilitate that.

I have a flexible schedule and usually am ready to tutor as soon as the school day ends. Over the summer I run study groups, work on skill mastery, and keeping up with subject curriculum to prepare for the new school year. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about the college application process, testing, or need advisement in course selection based on your 4-year plan.
