Welcome to Bellview Elementary Counseling
Hello Bobcat Families! I am excited to be starting my 15th year at Bellview. Time has really flown by. I am orginially from Virginia but have lived in NWA for 14 years. I graduated from James Madison University (Go Duke Dogs!) and completed my counseling education degree at University of Virginia (Go Wahoos!) My husband I have two daughters who currently attend Bellview. My favorite thing to do is spending time with my family, specifically our game and movie nights. I look forward to a wonderful year!
