I am so excited to be a part of Tincher Preparatory School!

As a Counselor and Educator, I feel strongly about instilling a growth mindset in our students, leading with positivity, and finding a healthy balance between rigorous academics and rich social-emotional learning experiences.

Prior to joining the LBUSD school community, my experience includes 12 years in the field of education, a Masters in Counseling, and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.

Please take a moment to explore all that the Tincher Counseling Program has to offer. You'll find information about resources available to you and your student, and the variety of ways we may work together.

If you ever have questions, concerns, or just want to check-in, I'm available via email or phone at any time. I aim to respond to all communication within two school days.
