Counselor's Corner

Welcome to the HES Counselor's Corner. This is the online home of the HES School Counselor. Here you will find information about parent and student resources, student safety, and other information.

As  a lifelong community member of Hamilton Township, I am very proud to serve the children and families at Hamilton Elementary School.  I graduated from Hamilton Township High School in 1986 and worked as a secretary at Hamilton Township High School from 1987 until 1990 and decided to become a teacher.  I attended and worked at Columbus State Community College until I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Ohio Dominican College in 1993.  I began teaching at Hamilton Middle School as an Intervention Specialist and earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Dayton in 1998.  I am licensed as a School Counselor and have certification in Supervision and Special Education. 


My passion is working with children and families.  I am very fortunate that I  live in the community where I have built my career.  My job is to support all elementary students, act as a liaison with outside agencies, and be a resource person for teachers, parents, and guardians. I visit classrooms to teach social emotional skills and work with students individually to help them learn social and communication skills.  I talk with students to help identify and manage emotions, big and small.  Even though I have been in the field of education for 30+ years, I learn new things daily.  Your children and our families make Hamilton Township the best place to live and work.
