Degrees and Certifications:

I am in my second year at Shortridge High School after beginning my school counseling career at Mooresville High. I attended DePauw University and after graduation I spent a year in South Florida with AmeriCorps teaching English and literacy skills to adults. As a running enthusiast, I then moved to Columbus, Ohio to organize and time road races. After a couple of years, I realized I wanted to have a more direct impact on youth and their transition through high school so I enrolled in Butler University's masters program in school counseling. I live in Indianapolis with my wife, Abby, and one-year-old son, Cooper.
I am very excited to help the students at Shortridge High School develop their academic plans, overcome the challenges and obstacles of high school, and help them explore their post-secondary opportunities.
