Hello wonderful AKCS community! Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I am elated to join the AKCS family this year as the Social Worker / Counselor serving students grades 4 through 8. I bring seven years of School Social Work experience to ACKS alongside a sincere dedication to working with New Mexico's young people. I am deeply grateful to be part of the process that helps kids stretch toward their brightest stars and highest potentials. It is a true privilege to stand as an ally alongside young people and to be given the opportunity to be a catalyst for the growth and strength of students attending AKCS.
A little bit about me: the very beat of my heart is my beautiful 5 year old son. Creative expression is my sanctuary and my pulse! I have been a dancer for over four decades and enjoy playing the piano. I have deep affection for the wild and breathe life into my "nurture through nature" motto by way of camping, snowshoeing, canoeing, hiking, paddle boarding and other outdoor adventures whenever able.
I very much look forward to being part of the AKCS equation that makes this school year special, supportive, and memorable!
