Ms. Jill Wanielista, School Counselor/Traveling Counseling Interventionist

Hi everyone! I am Miss Wanielista and this is my first year as a school counselor. Growing up in Washington Township and graduating from WTHS in 2013, I am so excited to be back in the district as an employee. I earned my BA in Psychology from Rowan University, and my M. Ed., Elementary and Secondary school counseling from Wilmington University. I will be traveling between Bells, Hurffville, and Thomas Jefferson. In doing so, my goal is to create a safe space for all students and help them develop their social-emotional skills. I will be working alongside the other counselors to provide individual counseling, group counseling, and classroom lessons. I look forward to meeting all of you!
