Elementary School Counselor Page
Hello Boone Central Families
Welcome! I am very fortunate to be the BCE School Counselor because we have amazing students, families and a super staff. My husband, Todd and I live on an acreage in Newman Grove with our two dogs, Dually and Queso, seven horses and too many barn cats. My step-daughter, Taci, is a senior at Arcadia High School. She and her dad love to rodeo, so we spend the majority of weekends and summer at rodeo events all around Nebraska and the surrounding states.
I grew up in Hooper and graduated from Logan View-Jr.-Sr. High. I then attended Wayne State College where I received my Bachelor's Degree in elementary education.
Later I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and am now nearly finished with my second Master's Degree in School Counseling.
I love working with students and feel passionate about having the opportunities to advocate for our students and offer assistance to help in the areas of social-emotional, behavioral, and academic skills. Please reach out if I can help in any way.
