Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am very excited to be at Mary Paxton Keeley for my 17th year here and my 19th year as an Elementary School Counselor in Missouri. I grew up in Union, MO and graduated from Union High School. Then I went to Westminster College in Fulton and received my BA in Psychology with a minor in Business. After attending college, I pursued my graduate degree at MU in Educational and Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Elementary School Counseling. I also completed my elementary teaching certificate while at MU. So I am certified to be a counselor for K-8th grades and a teacher for 1st-5th grades. I worked in Jefferson City Public Schools for two years before coming here. I am married to my wonderful husband Joe and we have two daughters, Lucy and Josey. I enjoy playing with my kids, watching movies, reading, scrapbooking, the outdoors and various sports; especially the St. Louis Cardinals!
