The counseling office has added a dynamic new member to our team. We have fallen in love with her and we know you will too. I hope you will take a minute to welcome Ms. Navina Vemuri to the Hooch Family! Just for fun I made her answer some very important questions and several of her responses are eye opening for sure.

Letter from Ms. Vemuri:
Hi Cougars! My name is Navina Vemuri and I am the new school counselor here at Chattahoochee High School! I'm excited to be here and to work with this great community! I'm originally from Germany, but have lived in the US for more than half of my life. Luckily, I am able to regularly visit my home country, since both my parents and my family still live there. I am also part Indian and am super proud of this part of my identity. I love the food, the culture and music - right now I'm even learning Bharatnatyam dance! I went to the University of Connecticut for my undergraduate degree, where I majored in International Relations. At one point, I wanted to work for the United Nations, but things have changed since then. Most recently, I received my Masters of Education in School Counseling from Georgia State University. In my free time I like to travel, play soccer, hang out with my friends and go for a run. Stop by my office anytime, I love meeting new people and learning from those around me!
