About Me

 

I am honored to be the Professional School Counselor for Travis Elementary! I grew up in Baytown where I attended elementary school at Travis Elementary, junior high at Baytown Junior School, and then graduated from Robert E. Lee High School. After becoming a proud product of Goose Creek, I went on and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Houston Clear Lake. I then furthered my education by receiving a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Lamar University. I have worked in education for many years, most of which have been here at Travis Elementary. I am so excited to continue to work with the students, staff, and families here at Travis and to help our Tigers achieve excellence in every way possible!
