Paige Patterson

Paige PattersonAs a high school counselor, my goal is to help students discover their potential. I worked in the “real world” for  fifteen years before switching to school counseling and  enjoy using that background to help students connect high school experiences to their post-high school life. I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, my Master of Education from DePaul University, and my Master of Arts in Counseling from Western Michigan. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, hiking and spending time with my family and friends.  I look forward to working with  you this year!
