School Counseling

Counselor's Corner
Hi everyone!
I am so excited to be a new member of the McDonell Family! I look forward to working with each of you as we navigate this new normal together. While I am not yet a school counselor, I have past experience working with teens through a summer program, with incoming college students and college freshmen at UW-Eau Claire, and with children with autism, cerebral palsy, and brain and spinal cord injuries.
In my role as the school counseling assistant, I plan to work to the best of my ability to best serve McDonell/Notre Dame students in the guidance area under the direction of Mrs. Proue. I am excited to bring my previous experiences and learned strategies to the McDonell/Notre Dame community as I get to know each of you over the course of the school year. I’ve had the most welcoming experience as a new staff member and am happy to belong to this family moving forward. Feel free to reach out via email or phone with any questions you may have. Until then, have a lovely day!
