MEET OUR COUNSELORS:
Amanda received both her bachelors and masters degree in social work from Utah State University. She has been practicing as a social worker for 12+ years serving individuals of all ages and diversities both in English and Spanish. She is a proud and passionate advocate of social justice and equality and as a board member of Cache Refugee and Immigrant Connection (CRIC), she is dedicated to create community for everyone.
After graduating with her masters, she happily practiced as a therapist in the SAAVI office at Utah State University and as a medical/clinical social worker at Intermountain Homecare and Hospice. She was very content in both of these positions yet was privileged to be offered the opportunity to join the beautiful and dedicated team at CCID. She is confident the right decision was made to join the CCID team. Every single day at CCID is a very rewarding adventure! She is very grateful for the privilege to serve at a school that respects and cares for every single child.
Because of her love and passion for the work at SAAVI and social justice, she continues to work with SAAVI clients in the evening while her precious kiddos attend soccer and dance practice. She very much enjoys serving others and looks forward to expanding her interest, knowledge, and experience in order to serve her community best. Ultimately, her most cherished role is being a mother of 3.
Martha's beliefs about all students is that they are able to take on any challenge when given the support and encouragement.
Martha completed her Bachelors of Science at Utah State University in Family, Consumer, and Human Development. During that time, she completed her undergraduate practicum at Logan High School in the counseling department and found her passion in helping students. This changed the course of her life to the direction of school counseling. Martha completed her Masters of Psychology in Education in School Counseling at Utah State University.
Martha greatest accomplishment is her family. She has been married for 22 years, has three adorable babies (21,19, and 16) and three awesome step-children (29, 27, and 24). Her family has taught me compassion, temperance, peace, how to love in all situations and this has carried over in all aspects of her life.
Martha loves being outside but is not a camper. She would be a forever student if she could afford it. Martha likes to bake and her husband's cooking.
