Conference Theme:
Be the Champion for ALL Students

The opening session will speak on characteristics of a champion and how these characteristics relate to school counseling. I will relate the concept of championship to leadership, advocacy, collaboration and systemic change. I will share examples from the field and build awareness of one’s own ability to be a champion for ALL. I will include a discussion of diversity and meeting the unique needs of all students and communities.


I am a career changer. I came into the field of school counseling in my early 30s. I earned my undergraduate degree in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a degree in the History of World Religion. I earned my masters in education and school counseling from DePaul University in 2011. This is my seventh year serving as a school counselor in the Chicago Public Schools. I have also served as a Master Counselor for the Chicago Public Schools for 4 years. Most recently, I have been awarded the 2017 Illinois Elementary School Counselor of the Year award and have been nominated as a finalist for the 2018 American School Counselor of the Year. It is my passion to serve students and communities in Chicago by developing comprehensive school counseling programs that work to create change and close the achievement gap
