Good day, my name is Kelly Nickerson and I have been a Guidance Counsellor with the Halifax Regional School Board for the past 16 years. I received my Masters in Counselling from Acadia University in 2005. Prior to working for the HRSB I worked with Phoenix Youth Programs as a Case Manger, Dartmouth Boys and Girls Club as an Outreach Worker and Fredericton Residential Service.  All of these experiences have given me the privilege of working with and for wonderful young people from a variety of backgrounds. 

Please feel free to contact me at 902-421-6777 #4 or by email at knickerson@hrsb.ca

I am usually at the front doors as students enter the building so I encourage any students or parents to feel free to approach me if they need my assistance. 

If students or parents would like to make an appointment with guidance they are encouraged to send an email, phone or drop in to the office (Parents are encouraged to book appointments in advance of dropping in as I teach grade 7 Social Studies and I am not always available to meet). Students can also send an email or complete a guidance slip at the office or outside my office.
