Welcome to the YES School Counseling Page!
Meet the Counselor
Hello! My name is Ms. Cigna and this is my second year as the School Counselor at Youngsville Elementary. I am so excited to kick off the 2019-2020 school year with my Junior Jag family!
I grew up near Princeton, New Jersey before relocating to Canton, GA. I attended the University of Georgia where I received Bachelors degrees in Psychology and Human Development & Family Science. I moved to North Carolina to complete my Masters of Counseling and Educational Specialist degrees at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and have not turned back since! I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
