Counselor for all 9th grade students at West Linn High School
Please contact me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org or (direct) 503-673-7816. We will work with you and/or your student(s) to find an answer.
About Me: This is my fourth year working in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District, and I love it! Our families, staff and students (most of all) make this the absolute best place to serve as a counselor. Before my time with WLWV, I worked as a counselor for the Centennial School District within the Gresham/Portland area. I joined the West Linn-Wilsonville team in 2014 after 3 years with Centennial. Both communities are equally fabulous and strong. I have a big passion for college and career prep, supporting the whole student (and family unit) around personal/social challenges, utilizing both school and community-based resources to enhance student learning, and working alongside all stakeholders in the pursuit of each individual child's success as little humans and budding adults.
When I am not in the office, I am thoroughly enjoying my two adorable sons and wonderful husband. We are an active family that loves to adventure in the great northwest and beyond. As a fifth generation Oregonian, I have fully immersed myself in all things "outdoorsy" and we are typically busy gleaning something from our great Earth... be it fishing, clam digging, forest forage, hiking, lounging on a boat, star gazing---outside is just a great place to be.
Please stop by and introduce yourself! I strive to connect with each and every person/student with positivity, optimism, understanding, empathy, and kindness. I believe acceptance, collaboration and encouraging connections create a far more harmonious school experience for all.
Along with many passionate teachers, administrators, and staff at WLHS, I look forward to great work with each 9th grade kiddo.
