How lucky I am to have a career that I love! While the most satisfying part of my job is working with students, it also presents a challenge to meet the needs of a diverse group of kindergarten thru 8th graders. Each day is truly an unique experience.
I began my employment with the Harrisburg School District in the early 90's. Until the closing of Lincoln School, I was the counselor there for many years. This is my second year at Marshall school and I look forward to a productive year. Early in my career, I earned a Masters Degree in Social Work from the National Catholic School of Social Service which is part of the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. I am a licensed social worker. Later, I attended Millersville University to earn my counseling certification. My other certification, also from the PA Dept. of Education, is Home/School Visitor.
A few years ago, I was granted the Registered Play Therapy-Supervisor credential...it took a long time to earn this and I am very proud of this accomplishment. I am a retired board member of the PA Association of Play Therapists. "Play" is one of the methods I use when working with students. Check out one of the websites which I have listed to learn more about play therapy.
As a school counselor, I work with students, families, teachers and community agencies. My main objective is to help students become successful individuals and to instill in them a desire to reach their full potential, whatever it may be.
