My name is Shayla Brown and I am thrilled to be a part of the Blanchet community as your counselor!  I have worked for over 20 years in the area of college admissions and counseling, and I am passionate about helping students.  My goal is to foster students’ intellect, creativity, and character, which will give them a solid foundation, so that they graduate from Blanchet knowing a lot more about who they are, who they want to be, and what they will do next. Whatever that involves – whether it is college, the beginning of a specific career path, or a service opportunity at home or abroad – Blanchet students leave here with the knowledge, capabilities, skills, and purposefulness to be successful in their future endeavors. 

I am excited to have the opportunity to get to know all of you!  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or to set up a meeting time.
