Hello Students, Parents, and Canton South Community,
This is my seventh year as a School Counselor and fifth year at Faircrest Memorial Middle School. I absolutely love being a School Counselor and working with middle schoolers. When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, friends & family, traveling, hiking, the outdoors, kayaking, learning new things, and taking care of my cockapoo puppy (Piper) and my cat (Dexter). Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason.
