Personal Information
I enjoy all forms of the arts - especially music, film, and theater. I spend most of my free time playing with my dog, cooking, reading, exercising, and traveling. I love seeing different parts of our country and the world, and I also love getting home to NC to see family and friends whenever I can.

Professional interests include school counseling, counseling supervision and student development, the creative arts in counseling, career counseling, and group counseling.
