Our counselor, Ashley Nguyen is here to help. Ashley happily makes herself available to students who are struggling to meet their educational goals due to both academic and non-academic reasons. No issue is too small or too large to talk to Ashley about. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Social Behavior and a Master of Arts degree in Educational Counseling with a Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Counseling. She is able to connect students with support services in their community in order to quickly get them back on the path to success. She also provides valuable workshops that encourage, motivate, instill confidence, and reinforce positive self-esteem. Ashley is a great listener and passionate about helping students succeed!
