About Me

Educational History:

I am a proud graduate of United South High School Class of 1994! :)

Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelors Degree in English and Sociology

Masters Degree in School Counseling Psychology

Personal Information:

I am currently a School Counselor at Los Obispos Middle School in Laredo, Texas. My passion is to work with kids and help them develop the self-esteem and confidence that everything that they set their minds to accomplish is very possible with hard work and dedication. Life is a precious gift, and every day we are alive is a true blessing if we see it as such! I am convinced that our perspective on life and the way we react to situations that occur makes all the difference! We choose to be happy, and we certainly choose the attitude we will embrace over any circumstance. One of my favorite quotes is from Charles Swindoll which reads, “Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it!” this quote made me reevaluate everything in my life and appreciate all my blessings! Working with kids for the past 14 years as a teacher and now entering my 7th year  as a school counselor has truly changed my perspective on life, I’ve learned to appreciate their innocence and joy but also to live each day to the fullest, as they motivate me each day to continue going and to never give up, this is my passion and I am blessed to be able to do this.
