Hi there! My name is Lauren Garrison, a proud Tennessean from Rhea County. After graduating from Rhea County High School in 2019, I decided to chase my dreams in the field of psychology at Tennessee Wesleyan University. And guess what? I recently snagged my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology! But hold on tight because my journey is far from over!

Now, I'm ready to kick it up a notch and dive headfirst into my Master's program at Arkansas State University. I will be focusing my studies on School Counseling because I'm super excited about making a positive impact on young minds and helping them navigate the ups and downs of their academic and personal lives!

Back in my Tennessee Wesleyan days, I wasn't just hitting the books. I was also acing it on the track and calling the shots as the President of the Student Government Association. Talk about a whirlwind of experiences! 

Fast forward to today, and I've packed my bags and moved to Kingsport! I love working with students and being their cheerleader, mentor, and friend. I'm all about spreading encouragement to help those around me thrive and flourish! 

Let me tell you a little secret: my ultimate goal throughout this journey is to build genuine connections with the people I meet. I genuinely care about every person I encounter, and I'm here to root for their success, whatever it may look like. Seeing others conquer their dreams brings me so much joy! Together we're going to navigate the exciting world of college and career choices. I'm here to offer guidance that's as unique as you are. Let's forge a path filled with support, laughter, and amazing achievements!
