Hi Farnsworth Students and Families!
I am the part-time counselor at Farnsworth and I couldn't be more excited to join this strong community! I am at Farnsworth on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Friday. I primarily work with Kindergarten and Third Grade students but am available to connect with all students when needed.
I graduated from University of Minnesota - Morris with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Liberal Arts for the Human Services and received my master's degree in education - counseling from University of Wisconsin - River Falls. I am passionate about mental health and helping students with their academic, social/emotional, and career development needs. As a school counselor, I aspire to make a holistic difference by building positive relationships, fostering opportunities for growth, and meeting all students where they are at. In my spare time I love to travel, play and sing music, and spend time outdoors.
I am thrilled to get to know you all! Please reach out if you have any questions :)
