Hello Ridgeview!  


The 2019-2020 school year will be my 21st year as a school counselor and I am looking forward to being part of your child's learning!  We truly are a school family at Ridgeview which means that we are "in it" together.  As always, I invite you to read about the School Counseling Program and about my role.  Take a look at some of the helpful links for parents/guardians and kids too. Please feel free to call me, send an e-mail or stop by anytime.
