Degrees and Certifications:

Vanessa Gonzalez

Ms. Gonzalez is originally from Los Angeles, California. She identifies as First-Generation Latina from a family of immigrants. Being the oldest and only one in her family to pursue a higher education has inspired her to continue breaking generational cycles. She earned her undergraduate degree from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Sociology and Psychology and recently earned her master’s degree from California Lutheran University in School Counseling. While going to college full time, she also worked full time as a College Advisor for college access programs to empower first generation students to attend college. She is starting her 1st year as a School Counselor at Park View High School. Her favorite part about working with students is empowering them to share their story!

She also enjoys being outdoors, attending baseball games, and traveling.
