Hello BJH Students and Parents,

I am so excited to be a part of the staff at Bowie Junior High this year as the school counselor!  This year will be my 26th year in education and my 18th year as a school counselor. Prior to arriving in Bowie, I have been a school counselor at the intermediate and elementary level. Prior to being a school counselor, I was an 8th grade English teacher and coach.  I enjoy spending time with friends and family, spending time outdoors, and watching all sports.  I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as a counselor at BJH and look forward to a great year.

As a counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal and social development of all students. I appreciate the uniqueness in each student and offer a variety of services to meet the individual needs of every student. Please call or email me if I can answer any questions regarding the school counseling program.
