About Me

Hello, and welcome to the O'Farrell Counseling Center Resources!

I am one of the school counselors at The O'Farrell High School. I am originally from Wisconsin, and have enjoyed my relocation to sunny San Diego. My educational background includes a Bachelors Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin Madison in 2012. I received my Masters Degree in Counseling, and my School Counseling Credential (PPS) from the University of San Diego in 2014. 

I am looking forward to another great year at O'Farrell, and to helping our students succeed in high school and beyond.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding any academic, career, college, or social/emotional related issue.
