Chris Wood - School Counseling Student Chair

Hello! My name is Chris Wood and I am the School Counseling Graduate Student Chair for the ISCA. It was nearly 3 years ago when I met a school counselor at Westwood High School in Mesa, Arizona who embodied the attitude and spirit I knew I wanted to have not only in my daily job routine but throughout my life. Her passion to advocate, encourage, engage and lead her high school students was so inspiring, I immediately drew the conclusion that I was going to be a counselor and make a difference in EVERY students life. 

Only a few years later, I find myself following in that counselors footsteps closely, only a few classes away from completing my M.A. in School Counseling from the University of Northern Iowa. Prior to UNI, I attended Wartburg College where I received my B.A. in Communication Arts with an emphasis in Public Relations and a Minor in Business Administration (I know, real counseloresque, right...) It turned out I found my calling while working full-time at Wartburg College, as an Admissions Counselor. In addition to attaining my M.A., I had the opportunity to travel the country working with high school students, counselors, parents, teachers and so many others to make dreams turn to realities. 

I am happy to announce, that I have recently accepted the new Don Bosco High School Counselor position for the 2013-2014 school year. It is now, that my dreams have become a reality and I will have the opportunity to grow and learn within a school counseling position while having the benefit of being surrounded by tremendous school counselors on the ISCA board who will help in mentoring me down the entire path. 

I enjoy spending time with my wife Abby Goltz and hopefully an English Mastiff puppy sooner rather than later. I also enjoy traveling the United States, grilling, running, swimming, being active outdoors, and of course an ice cold beer on a warm summer night.

I immensely look forward to working closely with the ISCA board and continuing to grow our membership among School Counseling graduate students around the state of Iowa!
