Position Statement I have been working at Chino Valley High School since 2011 as a school counselor. I was a stay home mom prior to my job at CVHS.  Before being a stay home mom I worked as a Microbiologist for 8 years.  I was very involved with PTA's since my children were born and I volunteered extensively with their schools helping teachers and staff. With all the work and life experience I have a clear picture of what needs to be done for AzSCA.  I truly believe in education and what it offers for our children.  Learning is a lifelong process and I want to share my passion of learning with others and I believe this can be done through the AzSCA organization.  Advocating for counselors is a step in helping student achieve their educational goal.  I also believe that counselors continuously need Professional Development.  I hope to help bring more PD to the Prescott area.  I also believe that membership to the AzSCA organization is very important in helping advocate for counselors. I have been fortunate to have been elected as a board member and I would like to continue to help and be a integral part of AzSCA.

Leadership Experience I have had various positions at Mile High that enabled me to take a leadership role. We were fortunate enough to be awarded the 21st Century grant. I was given the job of Site Coordinator which put me in charge of a $500,000.00 budget over the span of 5 years. I was responsible for all personnel, program managing and state reporting. Currently I am on the Mile High Leadership Team committee, as well as being our schools Athletic Director and Prescott Unified School District’s  Guidance Counseling Coordinator.
Professional Memberships AzSCA
Position Statement As I currently work for a district that has experienced cuts for the past ten years, with the loss of 3.5 positions in the counseling department, I am concerned the importance of guidance counseling is being diminished. It is important to advocate for guidance counseling, not just at the secondary level but the elementary and middle level as well.  Serving on the Board of Directors would allow me access to the most current and relevant information. This would enable me to speak to the importance of the guidance counseling program in our district as well as surrounding areas.  My personal and professional goal is to bring to Prescott Unified School District, the most effective and comprehensive school guidance counseling program for all our students.
