In addition to my school counseling experience, I have worked as a social worker for the Department of Family and Children's Services (DFCS), as an admissions representative for the University of West Georgia, and as a paraprofessional at a school for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. My diverse background allows me to serve your students in a unique and special way.
