Hi, I am so excited to be in my second year as part of the Bert Church Charger family.

I have been at Cochrane High School for the last 8 years.  Before that I was the school counsellor with Livingstone Range School Division. That is where I also completed my M.C. (Master of Counselling - Counselling Psychology and School Counselling). I volunteered with The Family Centre in Lethbridge working mainly in the areas of parent/child conflict and addictions. Prior to my work in southern alberta I was an educator and counsellor in various northern Alberta communities.

I work from a Comprehensive Counselling and Guidance Model, which means I provide:

  • Post Secondary Guidance
  • Career Passion and Confidence
  • Personal Counselling
  • Leadership Development
  • Academic Counselling

Students and parents are encouraged to consult the counsellors about academic, vocational and personal concerns by making an appointment with the appropriate grade level Counsellor.

Many educational events are coordinated with the Career Centre. Students and parents can keep updated by checking that section of our website.


This year I also have a Grade 9 advisory that meets on Mondays  - Click to download the course outline for Learning Strategies.  I can be contacted by email:
