At which school in the district are you a Guidance Counselor?
At the Junior High School

How long have you been a counselor at SASD?
This is my second year at the Junior High School, prior to this, I was a counselor at an elementary school for 4 years.

What is your favorite part of being a counselor?
Being able to get a chance to build relationships with my students and see them reach the goals they have set for themselves.

What is one piece of advice you would share with your students?
Every day is a fresh start. If you want to be a better student, start a new sport or hobby, or even be a better friend,  you can choose to do that any time. There is no time better than the present!

If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?
I would want to have superhuman speed. I never feel like there are enough hours in the day and if I could get all of my daily tasks done quicker it would leave more time for fun activities with my kids or give me time to take up a new hobby.

How and when did you know being a counselor was what you wanted to do?
When I was in 7th grade a friend of mine passed away and my school counselor made a huge impact in helping, not only me but my whole group of friends through that difficult time. When I was deciding on a career, I started to think about all of the people who had positively affected me. I kept going back to my 7th grade counselor and I knew
then that I wanted to make a difference like she did.

What will your life look like after you retire?
Hopefully, I will be traveling the world and enjoying time with my
family.

What is your favorite memory of being at SASD?

I love, love, love when we do Smooch a Pooch. Any time you can bring dogs to work my day will immediately be brightened. The line for students to meet these dogs and take pictures with them was so long and everyone was having a great time with it.
