MSE Counselors
    Hi! This is my sixth year working as a school counselor at Moorefield Station, and I continue to love being a SHARK.  I will be working with students in grades first, third, and fifth this year.  I graduated from the University of North Carolina with a Master's in Counseling and have been involved in the field of education and counseling since that time.  I've been working in Loudoun County Public Schools as a counselor for 17 years.  I began at Hutchison Farm Elementary in South Riding.  Before working at MSE, I was the school counselor at three small schools in western Loudoun:  Aldie, Banneker, and Middleburg.  I enjoy living in Purcellville, VA with my husband Chris and our golden/collie mix, Chloe, and our affectionate cat, Zaz.  My husband and I have four children, Ben, Jessalyn, Emily, and Sam. I also have a daughter-in-law Jacki and am a proud grandmother to a beautiful granddaughter named Caroline.  We are all ACC fans because our family consists of graduates from Virginia Tech, UVA, and UNC!  In my free time, I love anything artistic, all kinds of animals, and traveling with my family. 
    Hi!  My name is Michelle Fernandez, and I am one of the school counselors at Moorefield Station Elementary School.  This is my fourth year here, and I will be working with students in grades kindergarten, second, and fourth.  I will also be at Creighton's Corner Elementary School on Tuesdays.  I am very excited to have this opportunity to help students develop academically and socially.  Before becoming a counselor, I worked as a school psychologist for many years.  I also spent time at home raising a family, working in a preschool setting, and volunteering at my daughters’ schools.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from James Madison University and then completed my Master of Science in Education degree from Bucknell University.  When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, being active outdoors, baking, and visiting friends.  I am so grateful to be back as a Moorefield Station Shark this year and am looking forward to seeing our students grow and succeed this year!
