A college and career counselor from Collin College will be available to students on campus part-time this year. Counselor Timberly Lewis’ goal is to provide support to students and their family after high school.

Oftentimes students and their families have uncertainties about their unique transition; that’s why I am here,” Lewis said. “Stop by and bring your questions and concerns and I will do my best to help you find your path.”

Prior to working as a college and career counselor at Collin College, Lewis was an academic advisor at Collin for approximately two years. She also spent time at Tarrant County College, the University of Texas at Austin as an academic mentor for the Longhorns football program, and as an academic advisor in UT’s Division of Diversity and Community Engagement as part of the Gateway Scholars Program.

Lewis will be working at the high school on Monday, Wednesday, and on some Fridays and should be available for the most part from 8:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m.

“Students and parents should feel free to email me if they want to schedule an appointment,” Lewis said. “They should also let me know if they have specific appointment needs that are not addressed in the standard schedule.”

Lewis aims to ease the transition from high school to college for students.

“I can help students navigate the transition to Collin College or the admissions process at other institutions,” Lewis said. “I am here for exploration and support. I want to provide meaningful information and remove barriers.”

Choosing a major can be a difficult part of the college process. However with her background, Lewis said she is here to help students make that challenging decision on what to do with their career path.

“I have a background in academic advising that is helpful to exploration process and choosing a major,” Lewis said. “I encourage students to stop by if they are stuck in their process, second guessing their path, or completely undecided.”

Lewis also hopes to inform seniors of the resources that are provided through Collin College. Students can contact her at [email protected]

“As dual credit students, Lovejoy’s students have access to the writing center, math lab, group tutoring, libraries, and student engagement opportunities,” Lewis said. “I am here to offer program specific information, provide guidance for class registration, help resolve account holds, and support students in resolving other issues as they arise.”
