Hi, my name is Lauren Kennison and I am one of the new school counselors at Salk Elementary this year. I have earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology as well as recently graduated from Oklahoma State University with my Master’s in School Counseling. My passion for school counseling comes from my drive to help students be the best they can possibly be, both in academics and life in general. I met my husband my first year at OSU and have now been married almost for two years. Together we have two dogs, one an Australian Shepherd/Corgi mix and a Labrador Retriever. My Australian shepherd is a certified therapy dog that has been trained to provide support to those in hospitals, nursing homes, and even schools. This year, my goal is to keep an open line of communication between our staff members, community members, and parents/ guardians. I am look forward to having a great year at Salk Elementary!
