As a school counselor, I am here to be an advocate for all students and ensure they are successful.

I thoroughly enjoy the energy, activity, and development of middle school students and look forward to assisting the David E Owens Middle School students look deeper into their future opportunities as they prepare for high school.

I have been working with New Milford students since 2003. I have worked at both Elementary Schools as a 3rd Grade Teacher and as a School Counselor, and now I am a part of the counseling team at DEO Middle School. I enjoy getting to know the students, being an outlet for them, and working with them as they grow into themselves.
