School Counselor • Grand Prairie ISD

I have been a long-time fan of the school counselors. As a high school student, teen parent, and trouble maker; I found focus and support with my school counselor. When I started my post-secondary education at a community college it was my academic advisor (school counselor) who mentored me, initiated those tough conversations, and lifted me while I tumbled through life as a single mother with a whole lot of passion (aka big mouth) for all things empowerment. While working on my undergraduate as a social worker; I was surrounded by advisors/mentors/counselors that increased my passion for girl empowerment, motherhood empowerment, disability empowerment, domestic violence empowerment, and childhood protection empowerment. I have always wanted to advocate and fight for equity before equity was even a word used in education. Today, after 11 years as a school counselor I have finally found a true voice and outlet to support those of us who serve. Yes, we are servants to a bigger cause beyond our limited powers. We proudly give all that we know and continue to learn and grow ourselves just to provide even more. I believe in the work that LSSSCA does on our behalf and would be honored to be part of your advocacy team.



Director of Guidance and Counseling • Cypress Fairbanks ISD

This would be an awesome opportunity and would give me a chance to continue to give back to others. I have made it part of my daily goal to do everything that I can on everyday to make an impact on someone's life. Serving in this capacity will help our organization grow to higher heights. I have the unique position of supervising almost three hundred school counselors, nineteen social workers, four mental health intervention counselors, and one substance use counselor. I will use my influence to continue to feed into this awesome association!



School Counselor • Conroe ISD

I am currently an elementary school counselor in Conroe ISD at Lucille J. Bradley Elementary. I have been an educator for the past 13 years and a school counselor for the past 4 years. I am extremely passionate about our diverse comprehensive counseling program that is dedicated to meeting the needs of our students, staff, and the community. I firmly believe in the importance and the saying “ALL means ALL” in that we all work together as a cohesive unit providing endless opportunities for student success. Technology has greatly provided numerous opportunities for school counselors and stakeholders to connect, collaborate, and learn with transparency the ins and outs of our school system. In order for school counselors to grow and advocate for our role, I believe that it is critical and imperative that our organization provides and communicates tips, tools, strategies, and acknowledgments centralized to the profession. As Director of Communication and Technology, I believe that every tweet, message, and video sent out should intentionally inspire school counselors and stakeholders to make positive changes in their districts and communities.
