Last Names A-L

Hello everyone. Ive been a School Counselor at SMHS since 2014. I look forward to an exciting year at SMHS!

I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Master’s degree in Educational Counseling with a PPS Credential from The University of La Verne.

My previous work experience includes being a Financial Aid Counselor at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, an Outreach Consultant at Oakley and Arellanes Elementary School and a Substitute Teacher for both SMBSD and SMJUHSD. 


As a native from Santa Maria, its an privilege to be a Counselor at Santa Maria High School. I enjoy working here because we have amazing students, parents and staff.  My goal is to motivate and support our students and help them realize all the potential they have to be successful in life. 


I look forward to meeting you all. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
