Growing up in Ellsworth, Maine since the age of 4, I attended Ellsworth schools and graduated from Ellsworth High School in June 1993. Following high school I attended both Mesa State College in Grand Junction, CO and then Thomas College in Waterville, Maine where I earned by bachelor's degree in 1997. After teaching at Ellsworth High School in the business department for eight years and working as a READ 180 instructor for two years, I enrolled in the Master's of Science in School Counseling program at Husson University and graduated with my degree in May 2010.
Following graduation, I worked as a student services coordinator at Hancock County Technical Center for 1 1/2 years and then became a high school counselor at Ellsworth High School where I worked until June of 2017. The start of the 2017-2018 school year has brought me back to Hancock County Technical Center as the student services coordinator. I am very excited to be back at HCTC working with the students of Hancock County.
