Ms. Ford, Professional School Counselor
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Illinois Wesleyan University
Master of Education in School Counseling, Loyola University Chicago
Hello! My name is Ms. Kate Ford and I am the school counselor at Uplift Community High School. My main goal is to support students emotionally, academically, and with college/career prep so that they have a great experience during their time at Uplift and leave Uplift with the skills and knowledge necessary to find success and joy in their lives after high school. I was born and raised in Oak Lawn, IL, I attended Illinois Wesleyan University for my bachelors degree in psychology, and I attended Loyola University Chicago for my masters degree in school counseling. I have a true passion for school counseling--I’ve known I wanted to be a school counselor since I was 17 years old! I love spending time with and learning from our students. Outside of work, I love traveling, watching movies, playing video games, and spending time outdoors.
