I have 5 years of experience working as a school counselor at public, private, and charter schools in Southern California and most recently was the K-12 school counselor at an International School in Costa Rica! Prior to becoming a school counselor, I mentored at-risk youth through Communities in Schools and served as an advocate and resource counselor for adults with developmental disabilities as well as an academic and counseling specialist at an educational consulting company. Currently, I am the counselor and curriculum designer behind Bright Futures Counseling with a top-rated school counseling podcast, School Counseling Simplified, and an engaged online community. I write a blog for school counselors and am passionate about helping school counselors increase their impact and advocate for their role.
Lots of feelings checks :)

I received a Bachelor’s of Psychology from Georgia College and State University and Master’s of Education: Counseling and Guidance and PPS Credential from Point Loma Nazarene University.
I love living in Costa Rica! When I'm not working on my business you can find me at the beach playing with my toddler son! My husband and I are avid travelers and visit a new country each year!
