Guidance Counselor


Welcome to the Hokes Bluff High School Counselor Webpage! I am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing faculty, and I am looking forward to meeting the awesome students of HBHS!

I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in School Counseling from Jacksonville State University.  I taught 3rd grade at John S. Jones Elementary for eight years, and I was an elementary guidance counselor there for five years.  I was also a high school guidance counselor for eight years.  I am so excited to work as the guidance counselor for Hokes Bluff High School. I love students of all ages, and I am truly blessed to do something that I love everyday!

I am excited to see what the year ahead holds for our HBHS family! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about our guidance program or if I can assist you in any way. My email is, and our school number is 256-492.1360.
