Hello Mariners! I am Maggie Denison and I am a new 9th & 10th Grade Academic Counselor at SMCHS. I grew up in Los Angeles and attended Immaculate Heart High School. I spent much of my childhood as an athlete and went on to be a diver at UCLA for a few years. I received my BA in Psychology from UCLA, and pursued a career in Social Work. I received my MSW from USC, and went on to work in a variety of mental health settings including the USC Counseling Center where I loved connecting with students. I am passionate about mental health, social justice, and determining one’s own life trajectory. I hope that I can provide a safe space for SMCHS students to explore parts of their identity and map out their own unique path to college. I am very excited to be part of this community and I will strive to foster our mission of inclusivity and engagement. Outside of school, I love to go to the beach and attend concerts all over LA.
