   I am the school counselor serving all children in K-5thgrades. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tarheels!) and then obtained a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Educational Development from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This is my 8thyear at Grove Park, and I thoroughly enjoy working with all of our wonderful students and families.


Some of the services provided by the counseling department include:
