Boozhoo! (Greetings)

My name is Nicole Romero and I am in my second year as the counselor for Mesabi East. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Master of Arts in Adlerian Psychotherapy and Counseling with an emphasis on K-12 School Counseling. Over the past 6 years I’ve worked with young people ages 11 - 25 years old as a case manager and counselor in various settings from non-profits and pre-k to post-secondary education. My goal for Mesabi East students is to bring my knowledge of education, leadership, and advocacy in hopes to help them reach for their goals and aspirations as they transition into adulthood. In my free time my husband and I run our mixed martial arts gym, practicing Jiu Jitsu as well as traveling to new places every year. My door is always open, and I look forward to meeting and building relationships with the Mesabi East Students, Staff, and Families!
