• Students, Parents, and Guardians,
    I feel blessed to be a part of the Spartan school family.  Before arriving at SPHS as a school counselor, both of my children received an outstanding education from the staff at South Paulding High School.  They are both now thriving at Georgia Tech, and I contribute their success to the teachers here at South Paulding High School for preparing them for a highly competitive post-secondary educational environment.
    I have been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband.  My favorite activities are riding horses, snorkeling, and hanging out on the beach.  My Bachelor of Science is from Auburn University, and my Master of Education is from the Unversity of West Georgia.  I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor.
    I look forward to working with you and your student this year.  Please feel free to email me at the address below.  Also, don't forget to check out our wonderful SPHS Counselor website!
