I am so excited to be a part of the Royal Green Elementary Family. I have worked as a School Counselor in Miami-Dade County Public Schools since 1996. I have a Master's in Education from the University of Miami. I speak Spanish and am married with 3 children.

I look forward to sharing all my experiences, knowledge, and energy to complete the goals of the Division of Student Services which are to assist students in the academic, personal/social, health, and career/community domains. I look forward to working with individual students, small groups of students, and entire classrooms as well as providing professional support to teachers, parents, and staff.

How does the student see the counselor?
