• It is a pleasure and an honor to return to Commodore Options School as the K-12 counselor.

    After serving on the Steering Committee to help extend Odyssey to include 7th and 8th grades, I was fortunate to enroll both of my daughters in Odyssey. One graduated from BHS and the other from Eagle Harbor High School.

    I grew up in Texas, and lived in California where I received my Masters in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley. I have lived on Bainbridge Island for 27 years. I was a therapist for 20 years in community mental health agencies, and as part of that work I provided counseling services in K-12 schools in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Kitsap County.  Subsequently, I have been employed as a school counselor for the past 14 years in elementary and junior high schools.

    I enjoy hiking and snowshoeing in the Olympic Mountains and sailing in my time off.
