Mrs. Lisa Smith

Hello all ! My name is Mrs. Lisa Smith,  School Counselor and Vocational Coordinator at The Shore Center since 2019. I have been working with young adolescents for over fifteen years in various environments; gymnastics and cheerleading coach for 14 years, summer camp counselor for 1st and 2nd graders, reading tutor for Dyslexic population, part-time school counselor for grades K-8, behavior therapist for a Social Skills center located in Wall, NJ and have completed my school counseling fieldwork hours in both Elementary and High School. In 2017 I graduated from Kean University with my Masters in School Counseling K-12. Working at The Shore Center is an absolute privilege. I have the opportunity to work with outstanding students who bring light to my everyday. My role as the school counselor is to counsel both individual and small group sessions, deliver social skill lessons for all of the classrooms, run the first cheerleading program at The Shore Center, and provide Yoga for the staff every Friday morning. I am also the Vocational Coordinator and part of the CBI Team here at The Shore Center with my wonderful and dedicated staff. My role as the Vocational Coordinator is to find sites in the community for our high school students to job sample and work on life skills to best prepare them for life post The Shore Center.  In my free time when I am not working with the kiddos, I love to surf, hangout with my husband Logan, practice yoga, run with my dog Barry, find sea glass on the beach, travel, and go to concerts !
