College of the Week

CVHS College of the Week 2020-2021

College & Career Center Staff

Ms. Allison Zuckerbrow, College & Career Counselor

azuckerbrow@cv.k12.ca.us

Welcome back CVHS students and families! I am so excited to be back as the College & Career Counselor for the 2020-2021 school year. While this is not how any of us would like school to be, I will continue to do the best I can within the given circumstances. I will be hosting virtual workshops and events as well as posting videos and playlists.

Prior to becoming the College & Career Counselor, I was an Academic Counselor at CVHS since November 2014. I have extensive knowledge in school, college and career counseling with an ample amount of experience guiding students on their path towards college and career. I have always worked with youth my entire adult life and strive to help students reach their goals and full potential. I want to help all CVHS students realize their dreams!

In my free time I read, hike, and spend time with my household. Before COVID-19, I played ultimate frisbee and spent time outdoors with friends and family.
