Warrior Parents and Guardians,
I am excited to be in my second year as a School Counselor at Riverdale High, serving students with last names S-Z. As a Murfreesboro native, and Riverdale High School Alum' (C/O 2008), it brings me great joy to be able to work in this community. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in K-12 Pedagogy from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) and then completed a Masters in School counseling, also at UTC. This time has been very different from what we consider normal, and I want you to know that I am here to help my students and families the best way that I can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email. We will get through this! #HotelMotel
