Welcome to the Maysville R-1 Junior High & High School Counseling Page. My goal is to be a resource for my students academically, personally/socially, as well as vocationally. I have worked in the school counseling world for over 9 years. When I first began, I was a College & Career Advisor, then I became the Elementary Counselor at Maysville in 2015 before moving to the junior high and high school level in 2022. 

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, gardening, antique shopping, drinking coffee, and spending time with my husband and our three children (Mack, Lucy & Van). It is my pleasure to work with the students and staff at Maysville R-1!
