Students on playground

Hello Butterfield Families - I am so grateful to have the privilege of working with your students as your school counselor! 

I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, but moved to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona and never left! I received my Bachelor of Science in Family Studies and Human Development and my Master of Arts in Counseling. I will be starting my 5th year in MUSD as a school counselor and I'm so excited to be a part of the Butterfield Community. I enjoy spending time with my husband, our dog, and our amazing friends. I love to run, travel, play board games, and watch Marvel movies. 

My goals are to help all of our students succeed academically and socially and to create an environment where students feel safe and comfortable. I am extremely passionate about helping kids solve problems, finding the right coping skills to process and handle difficult situations, and listening to ensure they feel cared for and understood.

School counseling services are a part of Marana Unified School District’s Comprehensive School Guidance and Counseling Program, which follows the American School Counselor Association National Model. The ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success describe the knowledge, skills and attitudes students need to achieve academic success, college and career readiness and social/emotional development. I will do my best to lead, to teach, and to advocate for students’ academic, career, and personal/social development needs and ensure they are addressed. I will also collaborate with teachers, administration, staff, and families to identify barriers to student achievement so we can find the best accommodations and solutions for the students’ problems. Lastly, I will strive to celebrate diversity and create a safe school climate by valuing, respecting, and being responsive to cultural influences. I will aim to counsel from a multicultural perspective and with cultural competence: Accepting that I don’t know everything, but having an openness, willingness and humility to accept and learn about other cultures without judgment or preconceptions.
