Mrs. Drake is the Academic Counselor for 7th & 8th grade and she is excited to be part of the Wildcat family!
Mrs. Drake lives in Boulder with her husband of 30 years and they have two lovely adult daughters. Prior to moving to Boulder in 2007, Mrs. Drake lived in Santa Barbara, CA for 22 years. She has a BA in English from Amherst College and worked for a few years in the publishing business. However, she was unhappy there, as she loves working with people rather than manuscripts. After leaving the publishing field, she obtained a second BA, this time in Photography, from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. She owned and operated a portrait and wedding photography business there for 17 years.
Upon moving to Colorado Mrs. Drake decided to pursue a new career as she has always loved working and volunteering with kids and their families. She went back to school and obtained a
Masters in School Counseling at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. She completed internships at Boulder High School and Monarch K-8, in Lafayette and worked as a Boulder Valley School District Flood Outreach Counselor, assisting families who had been affected by the September floods, providing counseling, connecting families with resources, co-facilitating support groups, and giving classroom presentations to children on resiliency.
Mrs. Drake loves reading, taking long walks, photographing friends, family, and nature, traveling, trying new restaurants, watching movies, and hanging out with family and friends.
Please stop by her office, phone or email her. She would love to hear from you and looks forward to getting to know as many Academy family members as possible.
