The transition from high school education to college education is a tremendous experience. As a counselor who spent 10 years in a K-12 education setting, I understand the obstacles that our students face with this transition. My role here at DCCC is to help guide our students through the college process no matter what their experience has been. The DCCC community is a wonderfully diverse student body. My experience living through out the United States combined with my knowledge of all levels of the education system gives students a unique counseling experience. My goal is to provide a warm and friendly environment where students feel comfortable with their counseling needs here at DCCC.
