After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI, and a Master of Science in Counseling from National Louis University in Chicago, I worked in college admissions, for a university in Florida, recruiting students from the Chicagoland area. Since then, I’ve refined my focus on teaching and school counseling, working in school districts in the Chicago area and in Central Illinois. At GCE, I appreciate the opportunity to impact students in positive ways—through encouragement, self-reflection, and engagement. GCE’s integrative learning opportunities, mission, and vision are what attracted me to my current position. I am truly inspired to work alongside such purposeful and passionate teachers.
