Staff

It is my distinct honor, privilege, and pleasure to serve the students, teachers, staff members, and families of "the garden."  In my 17 years of service in Caddo, my passion for education has grown beyond measure.  I am a 2003 graduate of LSU (GO TIGERS!) with a B.S. in Elementary Grades Education, and I earned a Master's in both, Educational Supervision and Administration in 2007 from LSU-S.  In December of 2020, I graduated from LSU-S with a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership.  As a parent of two little Eagles (Leigha -grade 4 and Giana- grade 5), my understanding of what Eden Gardens provides is full circle, as I have a vast inner knowledge of all perspectives- administrator, staff member, and parent.  I fully understand what we offer as a school and how to meet the expectations of our parents.  I could not be more proud of the strong foundation my daughters have received from EGM, and I want that for every family! As a native of South Louisiana, one of my favorite things to do is cook Creole dishes!  My husband, Frank, and I are avid fans of our almae matres- LSU Tigers and the Southern University Jaguars!  Football rules in the Gipson house on Saturdays and Sundays, but I am an EAGLE year round!  

I am truly honored to serve as counselor at Eden Gardens Magnet!  After graduating with my Bachelor’s Degree from Louisiana Tech University in 2009, I went on to receive my Master’s in Guidance and Counseling in 2012.  Since 2012, I have been a School Counselor and I have been a National Board Certified Counselor since 2016. I was recently named Elementary Counselor of the Year for Caddo Parish Public Schools. I’m married, I have two children, and I am a published author.  I feel as if I have the best job in the world!  I get to help awesome children succeed, learn, grow and cultivate meaningful relationships! I am here to help and serve the students, families, and staff of “The Garden.”  I am so very excited to share this journey with all of you!
