Welcome to a new and exciting school year at Sweetwater Elementary! The 2017-2018 will be my 20th year in education! I have been the school counselor at Sweetwater Elementary in Lithia Springs since 2007. In 2017 I was named Douglas County Elementary School Counselor of the Year. I have enjoyed getting to know the Douglas County community. The students and staff members at Sweetwater have made me feel at home since day one. As a counselor I try my best to assist the students, parents, community, and staff members in any way that I can. Events that I organize such as Career Academy, Red Ribbon Week, Donuts for Dads, Muffins for Moms, and Anti-Bullying Week have all been huge successes. I enjoy my job as a school counselor and I try to make a difference in the lives of Sweetwater students and families each day.

Being an educator is one of the best jobs in the world! Every day is different, you have an opportunity to meet so many different people, and helping someone accomplish their goals is one of the most rewarding experiences ever.
