I have been with Washoe County School District for 24 years.  I spent the first 12 years of my career as a Counselor at Wooster High School.  I was there when we implemented the IB Program and was the first IB Coordinator.  It was an exciting time!  Being a member of the Extended Studies team is just as exciting.  My goal is to provide support for all students who want to achieve academic success and acquire a superior education through optional programs.  Extended Studies supports a broad range of programs that makes it possible for students to participate in activities community-wide, gain valuable experience, and earn class credits that will help them make progress toward their high school diploma.

I have been a secretary in our department for over 15 years.

I have been responsible for our Extended Studies programs that we offer to WCSD High School students. These programs include: PE Options, Supervised Curriculum PE, Job Experience and Training & Credit by Exams.

I have seen several changes in our department throughout the years; however, one thing has always remained the same, we provide “Options” for Students to succeed in getting high school credits outside the classroom environment.

I want Extended Studies Counseling Program to be viewed as a learning community where everyone is involved, appreciated and feels welcome to engage themselves in the learning process. I will strive to be conscious in student interactions based on cultural background, gender and/or socioeconomic status.

I will facilitate a support system so all students have access to the tools enabling them to seek their potential and progress confidently into an ever-changing society.
