First of all I want to say that I am incredibly excited to be a part of the school family here at Sharpstown International. I have spent 18 years of my career working in schools and hospitals all over Houston with Communities In Schools, KIPP, and Texas Children’s Hospital. I am a world traveler, so being at a school that teaches kids to expand their horizons past Houston, past Texas and past the United States is a perfect fit. Being a School Social Worker is what I was meant to do in life, so I am honored to be able to provide mental health support for our students. On my page I have included our Parental Consent for counseling form along with Emergency Mental Health referrals. If you want me to set up counseling appointments with your child please set up a meeting with your child’s grade level dean, and I and sign the consent. If your child requires emergency mental health services please call 911 or take them to one of the agencies listed on the referral link.
My hobbies include yoga, dancing, music/concerts, reading, meditation, traveling, being happy, having fun, and spending time with my family, friends and pets. My family is all from Louisiana so I am a proud Cajun. I have a Master’s Degree from the University of Texas at Austin so I am also a proud Longhorn! Thank you for letting me serve this campus, I am excited and happy to be here!
