Counselor, Xavier High School
1. What did you study in college? Was your plan to enter the school counseling world?
2. What inspires you most about your job?
3. How has being a member of WACAC helped you?
4. What is one piece of advice you would give a new admissions counselor or high school counselor?
Remember you can't fix anybody. You CAN support and celebrate successes with your students, offer resources to families, encourage your coworkers and make a true difference in the lives of many you come in contact with. Relationships mean everything and although you will rarely actually SEE the difference you make, school counselors really DO matter and make the school experience better for everyone. No matter how frustrated you might get with (SUBSTITUTE NOUN HERE), you matter to that student who needed you to listen today.
5. If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Probably pizza because you can change it up (different toppings, dessert pizza, veggie pizza).
6. What's an interesting fact about you that has nothing to do with admissions counseling?
I still love to play volleyball and in my next life I will come back and work with animals (sort of like working with high schoolers!!)
