Hello! My name is Taylor Austin and I am one of the School Counselors at Deer Lakes High School. This is my second year working within the Deer Lakes School District, and I come with acceptance, empathy, and compassion. Prior to working at Deer Lakes, I worked as a counselor at a high school near Charlottesville, Virginia, however, I am not new to the Pittsburgh area! I grew up in a small town south of the city and now currently reside in the North Huntingdon area.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to work with students and in the field of education. Once I started college, it didn't take me long to realize that the counseling field was the perfect career path for me. I attended The Pennsylvania State University and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. After that, I continued my education at California University of Pennsylvania and received a Master of Education Degree in School Counseling.
I really look forward to working with each and every one of my students daily. If you ever feel the need to reach out, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at [email protected]
. I will always do my best to address any social/emotional, academic, or college/career questions you may have.
