Family School Enhancement Counsellor
In sixth grade, Mrs. Vickery remembers thinking, "I want to be a counsellor that works in schools AND with families". Lo and behold, two weeks from completing her Psychology degree, she discovered that the role actually existed, and Red Deer Catholic was hiring! She began her career as a Family School Enhancement Counsellor for RDCRS at St. Teresa of Avila straight out of university. While she does miss her STOA family, she was excited to make the move to Notre Dame in 2019 and then SJHS in 2020. She can honestly say - I love my job and look forward to working with, and for, the staff and our families every single day. Yes - even on Mondays.
Mrs. Vickery is a ife, mother of 2, Oilers fan and bacon enthusiast who loves cats and dogs equally. When she is not attending kids' school and/or sporting events, you can find her reading or dreaming about all of the things she wants to make, but never will.
Her favorite quote is: "Wherever you go, there you are." (Jon Kabat Zin)
