Jensen, Wendy (Counselor)


Hello Nesbitt Academy!        

My name is Wendy Jensen and I am so happy to say that this year I will be working with Felicia Carter in the Counseling department! I will be here Monday-Friday, room 1125, and am available to assist you in any way I can during this busy semester. School and life can be difficult to navigate sometimes, so please know that my door is always open and I will help in any way I can.It is my goal to provide a safe space for students of all backgrounds and abilities to explore their thoughts and needs and help them discover their true potential. 
Just a little bit about my background, I am a native of WNC and graduated from UNC-Asheville with a BA in History and Education. I also received my Master's in School Counseling from Western Carolina University and am a National Certified Counselor. I have worked in Buncombe County Schools for 10 years, serving as a Social Studies teacher at both Reynolds High School and Owen High School. I also served as a volunteer Teacher Trainer with the Peace Corps in China for 1 ½ years.
Currently, I live in the Leicester area with my husband, pig, and chickens. I really enjoy exploring new cultures and traveling. I also love hiking and cooking, and I am always up for learning new things! 
I really look forward to meeting and working with all of you here at Nesbitt Academy. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. 

Thank You,

Wendy Jensen
