"Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows."  Helen Keller

Welcome to CTLA!  I am beginning my third year as Counselor for CTLA.  I've worked over 25 years as a School Counselor and private therapist with experience in a variety of settings.  

I support student success in a number of ways. My primary responsibility is to promote success within the school environment. I recognize that students' overall well-being is fundamental to academic achievement, and I encourage students to see me when encountering academic, social, or personal difficulty. Counselors address the concerns of students and, when necessary, connect them and families with the resources they may need, both inside and outside of school. 

A little about me:  I grew up in upstate New York and relocated to North Carolina when I was in high school.  I graduated from North Carolina State University and East Carolina University.  I am licensed  through the NC Department of Public Instruction (K-12) and the NC Board for Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC).  I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).  I am owned by two very spoiled cats, Jingles and my newest addition, Sofie.  I love baseball and always pull for the Yankees.  In my spare time, I'm a photographer and love to travel for new photo opportunities.

My door is open and I look forward to getting to know you!

  • I split my time between CTLA and Archer Lodge Middle School.  I am on the CTLA campus every Wednesday, Thursday, and alternating Fridays.  I am always available through email.

  • JCTD Club Applications

    Johnston County Teen Drivers (JCTD) is a peer-to-peer safety program for young drivers. JCTD holds several events throughout the school year and all students are encouraged to attend. JCTD has ten leadership council membership spots available each year. This year we will be selecting 4 Super Senior/Juniors, 4 Sophomores, and 2 Freshman. A backup member will be selected for each grade level in the event a JCTD member cannot fulfill their duties. Membership needs to be renewed every year. Having membership the previous school year does not guarantee your membership for the current school year. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Hales. Forms are available in the main office and must be returned to Mrs. Hales or the office by 4:50 pm Monday, August 27th. Late forms will not be accepted.
