Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am beginning my 10th year of high school counseling here at John Handley and I could not be more excited. It has certainly been a whirlwind of change, but without change we do not grow. 
 
One of my favorite quotes reads "A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not what ships are built for." Staying in the harbor is safe - staying in the same hometown, same friendship group, same routine may feel comfortable and secure. But I truly believe we were each meant for more than we are settling for. Try the new food, talk to the new person sitting by themselves in the cafeteria, try out for the sports team or choir or join a new club, go to the college where you don't know anyone. Push past the limitations you have put on yourself. You just might be surprised at the strength you find within. 
 
Professional Background
I hold a B.A. in Psychology from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA. I then attended Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA where I earned my M.Ed. in Secondary School Counseling.
