Columbus City Schools


I am a school counselor in the Columbus City School District in Columbus, Ohio.

From 2009 until 2013, I served as the Chapter Director of Ohio EdTA. I have served on the Board of the organization since 2001. My duties have included workshops, scholarships, Individual Events, Performances, and secretary. I now serve on the EdTA Governing Board as the Vice President.

I served on the ITO Advisory Board along with Diane Carr and Kimberly Staples for six years and I was honored to be awarded Co-Volunteer of the Year a few years ago because of this work. I received the Volunteer of the Year Award a second time along with my colleagues on the Advocacy Leadership Network.

I make an effort to perform in at least one production each year, which has helped in my teaching more than I realized it would. Recent shows have been Merrily We Roll Along, Falsettos, Side Show, Ragtime, A Christmas Story, She Loves Me and Assassins.
