Yeager, Melanie (Counselor)

 It is a pleasure to begin another year here at NDA! The dedicated staff and students make this school truly incredible.

I grew up in Dayton, OH and Greensboro, NC and received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Appalachian State University where I studied first English and later College Student Development and Professional School Counseling.  Go Apps!

My professional background is in college admissions, student services work at the collegiate level, and school counseling.  I have previous experience as an elementary school counselor in Burke County and a high school c
ounselor here in Asheville at A.C. Reynolds High School and Owen High School. 


I enjoy my family, expressive arts, comedy, jogging and all activities which bring peace to the chaos of life. 

Growth is not a linear path. The twists and turns of life are the fertile soil from which new experiences spring. It is all part of our human experience and I'm here to support you through it.
