Meet the Counseling Team

Hello Everyone, I’m Bayside’s School Counselor, with more than 17 years of experience, 8 of which have been at an Alternative Education setting. I have a deep joy for my position and appreciate working with our staff, students and families. Our Bayside students come behind in credits and it is my goal to work as part of the team to provide them the resources and support for academic and personal challenges to be successful. I am committed to understanding and servicing each student’s unique needs. Meeting students where they are at matters as I work to make a positive impact daily. I look forward to getting to know each family and their student as we grow our Bayside family 😊
