Where do you live?

I live in Eden Prairie with my husband, two children and our Golden Retriever.

Why did you become a counselor?

I became a school counselor because I love working with students (especially teenagers) and helping them out with their problems or helping them find a career they would like to do. It is a very fulfilling career.

I chose BlueSky because I was impressed with BlueSky's student services model – the three-person team approach we use to help students succeed.

Why did you choose BlueSky?

I chose BlueSky because I was impressed with BlueSky's student services model –
the three-person team approach we use to help students succeed. I like the fact that each student is supported by a home base teacher, a counselor, and a social worker.

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

BlueSky is special because of the caring staff and the flexibility it offers students.  The staff at BlueSky goes above and beyond to help their students be successful.

What do you like to do when you're not working at BlueSky?

When I am not working, I love hanging out with my family, going out with friends and reading a good book.  My family is very important to me, and we love being together and having fun.

If there were one thing you could tell people about BlueSky, what would it be?

BlueSky is an awesome school that has staff that care about their students. We want our students to succeed.
