Welcome to Academic Counseling

Welcome to the Academic Counseling Department!
It has been an honor and privilege to serve the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for 26 years.  For the last 20 years, I have been serving our Serra community in the Academic Counseling Department where I began my tenure as the 9th/10th grade academic counselor (2004 - 2008); 11th/12th grade academic counselor (2008 to present), and Director of Academic Counseling since 2010. 
As the product of a Catholic school education, a current provider of Catholic education, and a supporter of it for my own child, I whole-heartedly affirm that any student who is to able attend a Catholic school will be guided to learn, serve, lead, and succeed. 
As a recipient of the 2021 College Board Counselor Recognition Program, I continue to be "All In for All My Students" as I am truly convinced that every child should have the opportunity to pursue their educational journey to become successful in their faith and lives.
