Counselor’s Corner – Middle School


My name is Jessica Yauch, and I am the Middle Division Counselor (6-8).  I also coordinate the Irish Connection program and sponsor the Student Council. I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling from Oakland University.  I have earned a School Counseling Specialization and Integrated and Holistic Healing Specialization from Oakland University. I completed my undergraduate studies at Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!).  I have been a member of the NDPMA staff since 2015.

My husband Nate and I have two handsome boys, Elliot and Pierson. When I am not working at NDPMA, you might find me hanging out with my family,  practicing Yoga, paddleboarding or cooking. We enjoy outdoor activities together as a family; boating, fishing, and crafting to name a few.

I love what I do, and am very excited about working with the students, parents, and faculty of such an excellent school.
