MEET THE COUNSELOR

Welcome Hankey Hawks to the 2021-2022 school year! I am excited to continue serving this community. It is wonderful to have our Hankey Family back on campus full time this year!
 
My education includes a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies, a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and a PPS Credential in School Counseling. I love building relationships, promoting resilience, and helping others find solutions to life's challenges. I feel so fortunate to be able to walk along side K-8 students as they develop socially, emotionally, and academically.  I hope to inspire kids to live balanced lives filled with gratitude, kindness, and laughter.   
 
I have two daughters in middle school, and one giant rescue dog.  In my spare time, I love doing hot yoga, reading, gardening, and watching movies. 
 
Let's make this an AMAZING year together! 

MY CORE COUNSELING BELIEFS: 

  • Every student has dignity and worth.
  • Every student can grow given the right supports.
  • School Counselors advocate for ALL students.
