Hello Santiago Families and Community,
I have had the great pleasure of being a school counselor here at Santiago High School for the past 12 years.  This place is extremely special to me, since I am a graduate of Santiago HS-Class of 1996!  It is wonderful to be back "home" and able to work at a place that has such a great staff and respectful students.
I am responsible for all 9th through 12th grade students whose last names begin with A-D.  In addition to helping my students with their academic, career, and personal/social needs, I am also responsible in overseeing the following duties:
  • Serve as Department Chair
  • Master Schedule
  • USC College Advising Program Liaison
  • College Boost Liaison
  • Career Units for 11th & 12th
I look forward to a great school year and to have the opportunity to work with my students and their families.  Please feel free to email me or stop by our Guidance Office if you have any questions or concerns.
