Vanessa and her family.

Hi there! I am Vanessa Reed and I am the School Counselor at Mark Twain Elementary. I have a BS in Psychology from Southeast Missouri State University and an MEd. in Education Counseling from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am certified in School Counseling grades K-8. I have worked in various non-profit settings as well as in a charter middle school. My heart is in elementary!

I live in South County with my husband and my daughter. We have 3 pets: one dog (Murry) and 2 cats (Katsy Cline and Jojo). We enjoy going to the Farm (family land), being outside, and spending time with our families and friends. My passion is helping children become the best versions of themselves through social emotional, career, and academic support.
