• Hi! I'm excited to be joining the team here at LCWM Elementary School to provide support for each student! This is my first year as full-time school counselor, and am thrilled to be able to offer more opportunities for every student to learn more social-emotional, personal, academic, and career skills to be a more successful student and have an overall enjoyment for life. 

    My family and I live in Mankato. My husband, David, and I have two children, Ian in 7th grade and Aubree in 5th grade. I grew up in Wells and love being in this area. We enjoy spending time with family, exploring the outdoors together, and keeping busy with different activities.  I attended the College of St. Catherine for Financial Economics, and graduated from North Central University in Youth Development. Then we moved to Mankato and I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with my Master's Degree as a Professional School Counselor: K-12. 

    As a school counselor, I go into each classroom for a bi-monthly social-emotional guidance lesson. I also provide small group counseling based on topics or needs as well as individual counseling for a wide-variety of needs and desires. 

    I can be found at skuglin@isd2071.k12.mn.us or 507-726-2320 x5124. My office hours are 7:30am-3:30pm.
