Born and raised in the Bronx, New York I attended Murry Begtraum High School as I graduated as the class Valedictorian. I went off to study Sociology at Smith College, than pursued my Master's in Public Policy from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This past Spring I received my second Master's in School Counseling from Alfred University. I have been a school counselor for the past 4 years, and it has been an honor to serve and give back to the students who come from the same community as myself.
The NSHSS College Counselor Service Award has been created to honor hardworking counselors who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to preparing students for success in college and in life. These awardees are steadfast advocates for their students, are peer role models, and demonstrate outstanding leadership and excellence in education. Any high school counselor has the opportunity to apply.
