Title: 
Counselor

I'm so happy to be a part of the Stafford family! 

I took the scenic route in my career, starting by teaching elementary music and arriving in counseling. Originally from Temple, Texas, I graduated from Temple High School. From there, I attended the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, B.M., Belton, Texas, Hardin-Simmons University, M.A., Abilene, Texas, and Southern Methodist University, M.S., Plano, Texas. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in the state of Texas, and have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in private practice. 

I am currently the Counselor here at Stafford Elementary and am grateful for the opportunity to serve our students and their families in this role. I would welcome a chance to get to know you!
