Meet the School Counselors!

9th Grade Counselor

Stephanie Craft

Email: stephaniecraft@walkerschools.org

About Mrs. Craft: Working with students is my greatest joy! I love helping students to discover their personal strengths, improve their self esteem, and develop a plan to improve their mental and emotional health, and overcome academic obstacles. I enjoy supporting students through difficult life events and experiences. Outside of spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, music, podcast listening, and learning the art of baking sourdough bread. I also love running; it is an outlet that helps me to de-stress, challenge myself, enjoy the outdoors, and be a part of a local running community. My favorite distance is a half marathon (13.1 miles).

One of my favorite mantras is “Believe in yourself and you are halfway there!"

Dual Enrollment Coordinator & LAUNCH Liaison

Jennifer Beckett

Email: jenniferbeckett@walkerschools.org

About Ms. Beckett: As a school counselor, I love seeing the transformation that takes place throughout the high school years as students discover who they are and the impact they want to make on the world. My goal is to support students on their journey, to help as they encounter obstacles and to celebrate the victories with them. I especially enjoy talking with students about their future plans and working with them as they move toward their goals. Outside of school, you can find me spending time outdoors, listening to podcasts, baking cookies, reading, and crafting.

About Mrs. Newlun: One thing I love about being a school counselor is the opportunity to watch students grow over the course of four years into outstanding young adults. My goal is to be there along the way to listen, support, and celebrate all the ups and downs life has to offer. Outside of school, you can find me traveling with my husband and two dogs in our campervan. I also enjoy coffee, puzzles, naps, and anything Disney related.

Lead Counselor

Laura Fritz

Email: laurafritz@walkerschools.org

About Mrs. Fritz: As your school counselor, I am honored to get to know you as a young person and hear what you have to say about life and your circumstances.  I am here to help you as you navigate through your senior year and figure out what you want to do in the next avenue of your life. I am also here to listen and hopefully be another support for you here at school. In my free time, I enjoy exercising with my dogs, Daisy and Kai, going to concerts, and traveling to new places.  My favorite places I have traveled have been Australia and the Galapagos Islands.
