Chris Merle has a Bachelor's degree in English from St. Norbert College and a Master's Degree in School Counseling from Loyola University Chicago. He decided to become a school counselor after teaching middle school and realizing how much he enjoyed helping students discover their own strengths, skills, and interests. As a current high school counselor, he loves working with students as they plan their high school path and set their post-secondary goals. Seeing students maximize their potential and meet their goals is one of the most rewarding things he experiences professionally.
Chris also enjoys travelling with his wife and being active outdoors. He loves running, biking, and doing anything that allows him to feel the sun on his face.
