Counselor, YTA Instructor
Welcome to Clackamas Web Academy and 2023-24 school year. I hope you had a fun and restful summer! I look forward to meeting you and serving you as your counselor. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Here is a little bit about my background and professional experience. I was born and raised in Ukraine. Prior to immigrating to the United States, I lived in Riga, Latvia, where I attended a university. I graduated from Portland State University summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree, where I also completed the Bilingual Teacher Pathway Graduate Program. Then later, after teaching Social Studies and English Language Development at the secondary level, I decided to pursue a counseling career. I received my Master's in School Counseling from Lewis and Clark College. This is my 31st year working in the public school education system and 15th at CWA. As a counselor, I truly enjoy supporting our CWA students/families and helping students reach their full potential. Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family and friends and our sweet Frenchie Bella. Children have always been my biggest passion in life; we enjoy playing board games together, hiking and camping. I also love reading, meeting new people and hearing their life stories. I am fluent in three languages, so traveling internationally and experiencing different cultures have been a huge blessing in my life.
