Cherrise Smith—School Counselor

Cherrise (she/her) is just starting her first year at PSCS and could not be more excited to join this community. She brings with her training in program management, suicide prevention, trauma informed care, motivational interviewing, and substance use disorder prevention. What drew her to PSCS was the collaboration, small community, warm energy, and the genuine care she felt not just for students but for staff as well.

Cherrise has always known she would serve youth. She has been an after school program manager, cheer coach, student intervention specialist, special education teacher, case manager, and has spent the last 4 years as a counselor. She works hard to build relationships and trust with students, families, and staff members—and wants to learn individual stories, hear their challenges, and celebrate their wins.
