Dear Parents, Guardians, Students & Community Members,
I am excited to be one of the new elementary school counselors in the Fremont Unified School District, serving students and their families at both Millard Elementary and Durham Elementary School. As an elementary school counselor, I support the college & career, personal/social and academic development of ALL students according to the national standards set by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). This includes providing classroom guidance lessons, short-term individual and group counseling, crisis and responsive services, and collaborating with parents and school staff to create a safe and supportive school environment for ALL students.

Resources for Parents
Throughout the school year, I will continue to add website links and articles on the Counseling Resources page. Come back for new and updated topics and resources for parents and families.
A Little About Me
I am originally from Kodiak, Alaska but made my way to California to attend college (and experience sunshine and eat amazing produce). I earned my bachelor's degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from UC Berkeley, with an emphasis in conflict resolution and nonviolence. My love for restorative justice circles and teaching nonviolent communication skills led me to pursue my Master's degree in school counseling from California State University, East Bay.
How to Reach Me
My schedule for my school sites, phone extensions, and email are listed at the top. Feel free to contact me regarding concerns about your child or with questions or suggestions about counseling services and opportunities for your child and family. I'm looking forward to an amazing 2016-2017 school year!
