I am the K-12 Southern School Counselor.  I grew up on a farm near Butte, NE and graduated from Butte High School. I have earned a BS degree from UNL in Family and Consumer Sciences, MS degree in School Counseling from UNL and a MS degree in School Administration from Concordia University.  I have worked in education since 1979 as a teacher, coach, and counselor. I was hired at Southern in 1983 as a Family and Consumer Science teacher and coach. In 1986 I was given the School Counseling position. My passion for helping young people grow into productive and healthy citizens keeps me in education and volunteering for several organizations with the same mission. I enjoy attending and presenting at professional conferences across the state and region. I am a member of several professional organizations and have served in a variety of leadership positions.  I have also had the privilege to serve on local, state and regional Advisory Boards for educational and health issues. My husband Mark and I have one daughter who has earned a BS degree from Chadron State College and one daughter who earned a BS degree from Wesleyan and a Doctorate of Law degree from Cornell. She is married with two sons. There is never a boring day in my journey of life. Every day I learn something new and I look forward to the next lesson. Traveling, attending educational conferences, and family keeps me excited about life and thankful for the gifts that have been given to me and my family.
