Students and Families:

I wanted to wish you all a great summer in person, but due to our current circumstances we had to end the school year virtually. I would like you all to know though that we at BES have been thinking a lot about you all in the midst of these incidents going on: COVID and the racial inequalities. Please note that if you need emotional support or resources during this traumatic time, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Moving forward into next school year, it is my goal (as it has always been) to continue to serve students equitably and in a safe environment where they can learn how to be compassionate and productive citizens. I miss you all dearly and wish you all a safe, relaxing summer!

Below, you will find resources that I have added over the past few months.

  • About Me


    This is my second year as a school counselor, and I am so excited to be a part of the Benson family! In order to receive my degree for school counseling, I attended NC State University and did an internship at East Clayton Elementary. Last year, I worked at West Smithfield Elementary. As you can see, I am slowly learning my way around Johnston county.

    I’m originally from Wilson, NC and am the oldest of four siblings (two brothers and two sisters). I also have a Yorkie named Milo. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, spending time with my family and friends, and travelling. 

    This year I will be offering short-term individual counseling, small group counseling, social emotional learning (SEL) classroom lessons, and consultation with parents and teachers. Examples of topics that could be covered in lessons and counseling sessions include: peer relationships, managing feelings, goal setting, and conflict resolution.

    Students can ask their teachers or you, parents/guardians, to see me or put a note in the mailbox that's placed in the front office. Please feel free to contact me at any time during the year to discuss your child’s needs, if you have any questions or concerns, and/or need further resources.  

    In the meantime, check out my counselor website for resources!
