About Mrs. Crowell:
She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Juniata College in December of 2004. Dual enrollment credits, AP credit, transfer credit, and studying abroad allowed her to graduate a semester early. Because of this, she is passionate about sharing these opportunities with her students. Feel free to ask her about them anytime.
After Juniata, she pursued a degree in Secondary School Counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In December of 2007, she received both her Master's of Education and her Pennsylvania Certification. She added both her Elementary Certification in School Counseling and her License in Professional Counseling in May of 2013.
Mrs. Crowell began her position at Richland in 2016. Before that, Mrs. Crowell worked as a Secondary School Counselor for 3 years in another high school. Other positions she's held include an Outpatient Mental Health Counselor, a School-Based Counselor, and a Behavioral Specialist Consultant at a local mental health agency totaling 9 years. Prior to obtaining a degree, she worked in banking, customer service & food service. She truly believes that each of those jobs contributed to skills she uses every day as a school counselor and that every experience should be treated as a learning opportunity.
Her family consists of her husband Ryan, her son Wade, her daughter Adessa, dog Bo, and her kitty Belle. You can usually catch her supporting and chauffeuring her children to a sport or activity. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, reading, walking, planning family trips/vacations, listening to podcasts, or watching movies.
