News from the Career Center

Hello students & families! This year will be like no other, but I am here to assist you in any way I can! Transitioning to the real-world can be daunting in and of itself, let alone during a global pandemic... but I'm here to help you navigate that process! My job is to assist you with career exploration, college planning, financial aid & job readiness. I have experience working in financial aid and would love to help with completing the FAFSA and/or scholarship applications to help pay for college or other programs in which you would like to enroll after high school. I encourage you to be in the driver's seat of your own future, so I'm excited to get to know you and hear about your goals!

This site is full of helpful information that hopefully answers many of your college and career questions. However, if you have a specific question or concern, please don't hesitate to contact me. My contact information can be found on this Google Site.
