My name is Autumn Washington and I am the School Counselor of Westgate Community School. I am absolutely thrilled to be serving the awesome students and families of Westgate this year. When I am not serving as the School Counselor, I will typically be hiking, snowboarding, or spending time with my family.
I began working with youth, ages 0-21, 9 years ago and have continued this passion through different avenues and roles. Previously, I have had the honor and privilege of serving military youth and their families for 6 years at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora. I have also served as a Student Resource Specialist at the Community College of Aurora, which fostered much of my growth in high education systems.In all of my roles with working with youth and young adults, I have assisted in college/career planning, guided academic success, promoted healthy lifestyles, and fostered personal growth through social and emotional development.
I am extremely excited for this school year! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.
