About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Sociology and Journalism.

I later received my Master’s in Education from Wayland Baptist University.  

Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and Journalism

Master’s Degree in Education with a Reading Specialization

School Counselor Certification through Wayland Baptist University.

Current Position:

This is my first year being part of Hale Center ISD, where  I am the elementary counselor at Akin Elementary.  I am so excited to be part of this school district and community. 

Previous Position:

Before coming to Hale Center, I was a counselor for 15 years in Lubbock ISD. I started my counseling career at Honey Elementary, where I worked for 5 years, and, most recently, Irons Middle School, where I worked for 10 years.  

Before becoming a counselor, I taught for 11 years in all different levels from elementary through college.  

I actually did my student teaching, as well as my first year of teaching for Plainview ISD, at Ash 6th Grade.  


Family Information:

My husband Trent and I have three kids: Summer, Payge, and Easton.  Summer and Payge are grown, and Easton is a junior in high school.  

We have two rescue dogs, Marlow and Scrappy.


Personal Information:

In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, watch my son play baseball, read, and relax in my swimming pool.  I also love holding my new grandson, Calloway, as much as possible.
