Thank you for visiting the Joseph T. Donahue Elementary School Counselor's Corner!
It is my pleasure to be serving the students at JTDS for the seventh consecutive year. This is my fourteenth year as a counselor in the Barnegat Township School District, the first seven of which I served in the counseling department at the Russell O. Brackman Middle School. Prior to joining the counseling staff in Barnegat I received my Master's of Science in Eduction in school counseling and certifications both as a NJ School Counselor and Director of School Counseling. Before entering education, I spent 28 years as a corporate executive specializing in marketing communications, public relations, and advertising, a career that provided a great deal of skill-building in areas that have contributed to my role as a school counselor. My main goal as a School Counselor is to help your student(s) reach his or her full potential in areas of academic, social/emotional and career development, and to help him or her grow in their understanding of self and appreciation for others.
On a personal note, I am married to a long-time New Jersey public servant named Peter. Together we have two adult children, Kirsten, a special education teacher in Virginia and Brinn, who is in the medical industry in New Jersey.
I look forward to working with all members of the Donahue Elementary School family and wish you and your student(s) much success on their educational journey!
