I am the K-12 Southern School Counselor. I attended UNL and earned a Bachelors degree in Family and Consumer Science Education and later a Masters degree in School Counseling. I also have a second masters degree in School Administration from Concordia University in Seward. I was hired at Southern in 1983 as a Family and Consumer Science teacher and coach. In 1986 I was given the School Counseling duties. I enjoy working with all ages of students and watching them discover their own potential. My hobbies include sewing, showing cattle, and raising corgis. During the summer, I enjoy working for the school, helping with the cattle herd and traveling to be with family and friends. I also enjoy attending and presenting at professional conferences across the state and region. I am a member of several professional organizations and have served in several 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 bachelors degree from Chadron State College and one daughter who earned a bachelors degree from Wesleyan and a Doctorate of Law degree from Syracuse University New York. She is married with one son. 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.
