I am excited to begin my 3rd year as a counselor at MVHS, and my 4th year of counseling! My journey to my career was very non-traditional and I believe that you can achieve anything you truly want to. I attended Aiken Technical College after high school and transferred after two years to Georgia Southern University. Life circumstances brought me back to the area where I attended Augusta State University to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I continued my education to receive my Master's in Education in School Counseling. I have a passion for what I do and love having the opportunity to positively impact the lives of our future generations! While not at work, I am busy loving on my husband and three children!

I grew up in Gloverville, SC and graduated from Midland Valley High School with honors in 1983. After attending USCA, majoring in Math and Computer Science, I worked as a Cost Accountant for Graniteville Company for 7 years. In 1988, I married another MV graduate, Darryl Meyer. Together we raised two children who both were Mustang student athletes. My daughter, Victoria is now a scientist at SRNL and my son, Wesley is a service technician at Bridgestone. I have a six year old grandson, Easton who I hope will wear a Mustang uniform as well. I began working at Midland Valley in 2005 as the ISS supervisor, transferred to the Attendance Aide position in 2006 and now I am very happy to be a part of our amazing Counseling Department. I am extremely proud to be a Valley girl!
