This is my first year at St. Mary’s and my first year as a school counselor.  I’m so happy to be here and ready for the adventures of this year!  I couldn’t have asked for a better place to live and work.  Feel free to call me “Miss Jessica” as well as “Ms. Brown.”

I’m from the very small town Maple, WI, which is close to the Superior/Duluth area and the shores of Lake Superior.  I received my M.S.Ed. in Guidance & Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Superior in 2016.  Prior to that I worked for St. John’s Preparatory School on the SJU campus, spent a year as a graduate student studying creative writing in Idaho, and earned a B.A. in Writing from Northland College in Ashland, WI (2011).  I haven’t always wanted to be a school counselor, but the educational environment, youth development, and serving rural communities has always been passions of mine.  Once I heard God calling me to be a school counselor, it all made sense.

At St. Mary’s I am blessed to teach one classroom lesson per week to each grade.  I also offer individual and group counseling to any students who request it.  I’m committed to helping my students prepare for the future, achieve personally, socially, and academically, and become mentally healthy, faith-filled young adults.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime with questions, concerns, ideas, and suggestions!

In my off hours, you might find me on a nature hike, having a cook out, reading, taking photos, baking, decorating my lovely apartment in Olivia, or canoeing in the Boundary Waters.
