    Counselor Message:
    The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. (B.B. King)
    I look forward to working with students and their parents as they matriculate through Gateway STEM High School. My hope is to assist students in helping to make their experience throughout high school a smooth one as well as assist them in the post-secondary planning and decision making process. Feel free to contact me anytime.
    I attended Clark Atlanta University and received a B.A. in Business Administration/Marketing and worked in the field of business for several years. My real passion was to work with young people in the field of education thus, I returned to school to obtain Teacher's Certification in Business Education and  Master's Degrees in Education (Counseling and Educational Administration) all at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I have worked as a teacher and school counselor in St. Louis Public Schools for over 22 years, and thoroughly enjoy working with students and their parents. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, walking outdoors, and spending time with my family including my husband and children.
