Guidance Counselor


I have been the counselor at Austin Elementary since 2011.  I am an Abilene native and attended Jackson, Madison, and Cooper.  I did my undergraduate work at Baylor and graduate work at Sul Ross University.  I look forward to working with our great Austin staff, parents, and students!  We are also thankful to our PTO for their support with “The Leader in Me” at our school!  We have an awesome community here at Austin, and I encourage you to volunteer wherever and whenever you can!  Go Raiders!
The mission of the AISD guidance and counseling program is to create and sustain effective comprehensive guidance and counseling services which empower students with opportunities for the highest level of achievement in their academic and personal/social aspects of life to become responsible, productive citizens in a diverse and changing world.
I am involved in classroom guidance,  small groups and individual counseling with many of our students. I also work with the Lighthouse Team, Jr. Lighthouse Team, 5th Grade Just Say No Club, and many more programs throughout the year.  I am also the campus testing coordinator for the state mandated assessment (STAAR + STAAR ALT 2).
Please feel free to visit with me at any time!

My office hours are 7:30-3:45 Monday-Friday. Please feel free to call or come by anytime. 325-690-3920 ext. 8648
