7th/8th School Counselor
As the school counselor for 7th and 8th grade at CRMS, I would like to take a brief moment to explain my professional history. First, I was born and raised in Maine and as a student at Medomak Valley High School I decided that I would remain in Maine to fulfill my educational and career goals. I attended Saint Joseph’s College where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Upon graduation I immediately entered into the school counselor program at the University of Southern Maine as a full time student. I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling in 2000 and went on to work in Sabattus for six years (2 years with grades K-8, 4 years with grades 5-8) and then finally had the opportunity to move back to my hometown of Waldoboro. I spent two years at A.D. Gray Middle School working within the community that I myself had grown up in. This proved to be an interesting and worthwhile experience but I was very excited when I saw a position open at CRMS. I was completely thrilled when I was offered the school counseling position for grades 7 and 8! It is a pleasure to work at CRMS and I look forward to working closely with all members of the CRMS community for many years to come!
Over the years, I also had many opportunities to expand my knowledge of and involvement within the school counseling profession. For example, I served as President on the Board of the Maine School Counselor Association and sat on a committee created by the Department of Education to develop the Maine Comprehensive School Counseling Program Model. I am committed to the school counseling profession and thoroughly enjoy working with middle school students. The combination of these two passions makes my work here at CRMS very exciting! I thank you for allowing me to enter this community as an advocate for all of CRMS’s students.
