Meet The School Counselors

First, second, and fourth grade counselor
Mrs. Phillips

I've had the pleasure of being a full-time school counselor at Sudley Elementary School for thirteen years.  I received my Masters in Counselor Education from Virginia Commonwealth University.  I believe every child has a hidden talent waiting to be discovered.   

I'm looking forward to another amazing year at Sudley Elementary!

Ms. Farmer
Kindergarten, third, and fifth grade counselor 

Hello Sudley Roadrunners! Thank you for taking the time to read about me. Before landing at Sudley, I received my BS in Sport and Exercise Psychology from West Virginia University (Go Mountaineers!) and then went on to graduate from George Mason University with my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Development.

During my time at WVU, I studied abroad to South Africa, where my passion for working with children was ignited. I realized through that trip that I knew my calling was to work with children and the idea of being a school counselor soon became my mission. After I graduated WVU and started school at GMU, I worked in a residential treatment center then in school systems and loved every part of working with students like yourselves. I knew instantly that I had made the best decision of my life- to become a school counselor!

When I’m not at Sudley, I enjoy going to the gym with my fiancé, Chris, running with my dog, Boomer a three-legged Husky, and spending time with my family and friends. Oh, and if it’s football season you can assure that I am cheering on the Mountaineers and the Washington Football Team!

Although, this is not how I envisioned kicking off my career and wish I could meet all of you in person, I am thrilled to work with all of the families, students, and staff members here at Sudley! I fully believe that all of us will make this year one of the best! Please email me with any questions or concerns. I cannot wait to meet everyone! GO ROADRUNNERS!!
