Welcome students and parents to the Junior High and High School for this very unusual school year!

The Junior High School Counseling Center is located in the main hall of A Floor, right across from the cafeteria. This is where the student schedules are made and where the food pantry is located. The center is open during regular school hours.

The High School Counseling Office is located in the North Office of the High School.

As an introduction, this is my fourth year with Guthrie Public Schools. Previously, I taught students Science and Social Studies at Guthrie Upper Elementary School. I am very excited about working with the school counseling team and so pleased to work with students on a new level. My ambition as a school counselor is to help each student work to their potential and also to assist parents and teachers in achieving this goal. I feel that collaborative effort between the counselor, student, parents/guardians, administration and teachers is necessary for student success.

My degrees and certifications include: BA in Psychology, MEd in School Counseling, MEd School Leadership and Certifications in Mid-level Science and Social Studies, US History/Government/Economics (5-12), English and Journalism (5-12) and Psychology/Sociology (5-12).

I have two sons - both attend UCO. One is a freshman, majoring in Journalism and the other is a junior, majoring in Computer Science.


The first step toward tolerance is respect, and the first step toward respect is knowledge.
