Hello Knights!


It's great to be back at Northbrook Middle School for another exciting school year!  As a project manager with Communities In Schools of Houston (CIS), I get to work with a lot of students, parents, community partners, and other staff at the school.  It is a privilege to get to work for and with so many amazing people!  

At CIS, it is our mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  Here at Northbrook Middle, that means I offer mental health counseling, tutoring, resource and agency referrals, and more! Please stop by my office (A216) between areas 5 and 8 on the second floor with any questions, comments, and/or concerns that you may have!

About Me

 I was born in Iowa, but have lived most of my life in North Carolina.  After graduating with a degree in Spanish from Appalachian State, I moved to Denver, Colorado, where I served with AmeriCorps in the Denver Public School district for two years.  Through that experience I developed a passion for working with students and parents of all ages.  I love hearing students' and families' (im)migration stories and seeing where I might be able to offer additional support.  I moved to Texas in 2013 in pursuit of my Masters of Social Work and am excited to have the opportunity to learn alongside our students and staff as we strive for excellence in all that we do!
